NN May 17
From the Editor
You have to love the month of May - two more Bank Holidays. Yay! Let’s hope the weather is good so we can enjoy some quality family time outdoors and soak up some vitamin D.
We should perhaps spare a thought for the young people among us who are currently nose-deep in text books cramming for exams. I have one in my house and he is working like a trooper to make these last few days/weeks count. To him, and everyone else starting GCSE or A Level exams this month, good luck! Remember, if you don't do as well as you had hoped, don’t panic as there are lots of options available to you.
And once they are over - enjoy your summer!
Inside NN Pulse this month we have lots of news and inspiring stories from around Northamptonshire. If you want to contribute please just email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll see how we can help you. I am particularly looking for local councils and clubs to get in touch and contribute to our ‘In Your Area’ pages. Readers love to know what’s going on where they live and this is the perfect opportunity to tell them. You can take a look at this month’s on page 8 to get the idea.
Delapré Abbey is close to opening its doors fully this year, but in the interim their beautiful Café has opened and it is divine. With stunning views across the grounds and the renovation work to admire, it is well worth a trip over there. And if you’re looking for something a little more special, treat yourself to an afternoon tea - you will not be disappointed.
Details of the 2017/18 Carlsberg Northamptonshire Food & Drink Awards were unveiled at Dawn Farms in Northampton last month, and we bring you a round up of the event on page 29, as well as details of how to enter this prestigious competition.
The Towcester Food Festival makes a welcome return in June and we have details of the event as well as a competition to win a pair of tickets. Good luck!
Expect the streets of Northampton to be a sea of bright colours and happiness next month as The Northampton Carnival makes a welcome return. This year its all about a Celebration of the Wonder of Nature. I thought the costumes last year were unbeatable, so how it will be topped, I don’t know. But the organisers promise it will be bigger and better.
Enjoy this month’s magazine (and the Bank Holidays) and I’ll see you again in June.
