It’s a long 18 months since I last wrote one of these posts. The world has changed but events are back!
I would love to cycle more for leisure but am put off by the volume of traffic on local roads.
I had another post planned for this week but when I saw the flowering wild flower verge near Didcot Civic Hall I decided to revise my schedule.
I first became aware of the Didcot Garden Town residents’ sounding board whilst researching my blog on the Didcot Gateway project.
One of the early casualties of last year’s lockdown was the county wide Artweeks events. Usually taking place in May, the events reverted to online shows.
The Bell Inn at Aldworth is one of my favourite pubs in the area. This out and back cycle ride is mostly off road, with just a few short stretches of quiet country roads.
I’m not sure about you but the sight of dog poo bags hanging from trees or takeaway coffee cups discarded by the roadside fills me with anger at how we treat this planet.
Although many of the usual tourist attractions are closed over the Easter weekend there are plenty of local trails to enjoy with your family. You can discover scarecrows, flower displays and Easter bunnies!
If you’ve ever considered getting solar PV panels for your roof then this post may be of interest.
This week I attended a virtual Didcot Cafe Scientifique event, all about hedgehogs. It was such a fascinating talk by hedgehog expert Hugh Warwick that I thought I’d share some of his amassed knowledge with you. I hope this is useful as I know most parts of Didcot have hedgehogs.
