Welcome... Well, in the past the summer has been a quiet (ish) time here at the FG...but not this year! We decided to ‘hit the road’ and introduce even more families to the FG and everyone in it. Things were not quite as exciting as that sounds but with the thunder, lightning & gazebolifting winds, lively enough!! With a bright display of magazines and advertiser’s leaflets we attended the Ashfield Show in Sutton, the Broxtowe Play Days at Eastwood & Stapleford plus the East Midlands Baby & Toddler Show in October. Thank you to everyone who came to say ‘hello’ it was brilliant to see you and welcome to our new readers, I hope you continue to be impressed and find the FG useful. We have worked hard to provide you with local information and inspiration and there are now over 1300 listings, many of them new, and lots of brilliant ideas for things to do and places to go... talking of which, check out our new-look ‘Things to Do’ pages from page 24 which have masses of great local events for all the family over the Winter Once again, a HUGE thank you to our fantastic advertisers. We are so lucky to have such a variety of brilliant local businesses and they deserve our support in these difficult times. Please let them know you saw them in the FG! Have a very Happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year...see you in March 2011!

Local Services

Midland Women’s Aid

Midlands Women’s Aid (MWA) is a specialist domestic abuse service provider.

Our organization is run for women and is committed to ensuring that gender specific services are available to women. Our service offers options, support, information and advocacy to our clients. MWA was established in March 1974. We are a voluntary sector organization, a Registered Charity and a Company Limited by Guarantee. We have Nottinghamshire Supporting People Accreditation and are fully affiliated to Women’s Aid Federation, England.

We understand we were the first organization outside London to support women and children experiencing domestic abuse. Our organization set the scene for many other organizations delivering such services. Our services include Refuge accommodation, Outreach Services to Women in the Broxtowe Local authority area, Support to Children both by way of Children’s work within Refuge and Children’s Outreach again working mainly in The Broxtowe Local Authority area.

We are very involved in the local community and work in partnership with many agencies including Police, Social Care services, probation, alcohol and drugs misuse service providers, education and work in schools.

We are pleased to announce our new project

“the bank”, at 112, Derby Road, Stapleford, Nottingham. NG9 7AD

will be opening shortly to provide Outreach and drop-in for women, children and young people. It is the intention to provide training, promote Healthy Relationship, raise awareness of Domestic Abuse and it’s affect on lives.

Doctors & Antenatal To help you feel better, get fitter and protect your family from winter bugs, nutritionist Katie Williams has come up with ten top tips to keep the winter blues at bay!

Doctors NG17, NG18 & NG19 Ashfield House, Forest Rd, Annesley, tel 01623 752295

Antenatal Services 4D Babyview Ltd, Nottingham Rd Clinic, Mansfield, 4D Baby Scans, tel 01623 624137

1. Bedtime routine – sleep is vital, so make sure all your family are going to bed at a reasonable time

Ashfield Medical Centre, New Street, Sutton tel 01623 559992

Ace Babes Family Network, Families After Assisted Conception tel 0845 838 1593

2. Drink water – we’ve all heard this advice countless times and yet most of us don’t follow it. Aim for 2 litres daily

Bull Farm Primary Care Centre, Millenium Business Park, Mansfield tel 01623 621059

Action on Pre Eclampsia, Support & Information Helpline, tel 020 8427 4217

3. Cut down on coffee – caffeine dehydrates your body and robs you of important vitamins and minerals, which is bad news for your immune system

Court View Surgery, Rosemary St, Mansfield, tel 01623 623600

Childbirth Natures Way, Interactive Ante Natal Classes in Nottingham, tel 07944 021615

4. Cut down on sugar – it’s effect on the body is so extreme many consider it a “natural drug” - if you do just one thing from this list, this one will have the biggest effect 5. Eat raw fruits and vegetables – they’re overflowing with health-boosting nutrients that are spoilt as soon as they’re cooked, so go raw whenever possible 6. Exercise – keep your body moving and it will stay strong and healthy. Aim for moderate exercise lasting 30 minutes, 4 times a week. You don’t have to join a gym, simple things like walking and dancing with the radio on count too 7. Eat garlic – it’s a natural immune system booster, so enjoy! 8. Eat yoghurt – it helps increase your supply of good bacteria – especially important if you are taking antibiotics 9. Eat peppers – whether sweet peppers or chilli peppers, they’re a good supply of beta-carotene, which turns into Vitamin A and protects the body

10. Be Happy!! Your immune system is affected by your mood!

Childrens Centres & Childcare At Ben Whitehead Photography I offer a friendly, professional service that covers all photographic needs from new baby and family portraits to christenings, weddings, playgroups and even more. I have always been a very keen photographer and have studied and assisted alongside professional photographers for some time. My dream of self employment became reality when, faced with redundancy in 2009, I started Ben Whitehead Photography. I am fortunate to be supported by The Prince’s Trust Business Program and with their help, not only with finances but also the day to day business management through their mentor scheme, I am now taking the professional and special photographs I always dreamed of!

Toddlers Activities

Kindermusik with Susie is a music and movement class for children aged from newborn to 5 years. Susie is one of 130 licensed educators working in the UK teaching a music program that has been developed using research-based and proven techniques. Classes help children develop early with literacy, math, social-emotional skills as well as musically. Since starting to teach, 2 of Susie’s own children have gone on to learn guitar and violin. Children are encouraged to explore and be imaginative in class, and unlike other music groups are allowed to move freely around the classroom. Kindermusik home packs support learning at home through high quality CD’s, instruments and books. Susie enjoys being able to educate parents on the benefits of music on whole child development whilst nurturing the child / adult bond. Four different programs are taught at Bramcote Memorial Hall. Classes have a maximum of 12 children and free trial places are available. Sessions generally run for 45 minutes over a course of 9 – 17 weeks. All lessons are packed with singing, listening, story time, creative movement, instrument play, dancing, and sharing. Susie is particularly excited about the new Family Time classes that have started this term. Family Time is designed for families with more than one child who want to enjoy a structured music program together. Many families have stayed with Susie all the way through the curricula, having started as a baby, up to the age of 5 years. More information is available on Susie’s website: www.kindermusikwithsusie.co.uk. To learn more about Kindermusik UK including news and testimonials have a look at

Hope Charitique’s Fashion Show Prom Frocks & Poetry An innovative ‘Charitique’ opened in Hucknall on 9th July 2010, a new initiative from Crossroads Church, Hucknall which is proving to be an exciting community project for the church. The ‘Charitique’, a cross between a charity shop and boutique is already becoming well known for low priced designer and branded clothing, handbags, shabby chic furniture and house wares, plus unique jewellery and craft items. The Church’s poet in residence, local wordsmith Louise Ashley, came up with the word ‘Charitique’ and pioneered the venture. With the help of other Church members the shop outlet is proving to be a great success. Pastor Sabra pickering says “ ...not only is the shop is making an impact but we are building friendships with our customers. Hope Charitique also funds regular creative workshops for local people to participate in which are advertised in the shop and local press. Previous workshops have been: felt making; African drumming; jewellery making and creative writing. We hold two fashion shows a year (March and October), which are proving so popular they are a sell out every time; and we are committed to helping other charities in the area by making a twice yearly donation from profits made through shop sales. Apart from the shop providing quality goods at affordable prices, opportunites are also opening-up for people to get in touch with their creative side, as numerous artists and craft workers provide us with unique items to stock our shelves with. The Hope Charitique’s 3rd Fashion Show ‘PROM FROCKS & POETRY’ will take place on Friday 18th March 2011. The March event comes just in time to get your prom frocks and the October event (2011 date tbc) is just in time for buying something special for that Christmas party. The shop does have an extensive range of evening wear all the time, so if you going on a cruise or have a summer ball to go to, pay them a visit in store too. In addition to the glitzy and glamorous dresses they stock evening bags, shoes and jewellery to accessorize your outfit. Louise says “Ladies come to us for their whole outfit, some have been so pleased with their purchase they bring us a photo in of themselves in it from the night.” Both of our previous fashion shows have been total sell outs so get your tickets early to avoid disappointment. On sale from 1st January 2011 from the shop at 21 High street, Hucknall. Shop opening times are; Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays 10am - 1pm Thursdays and Fridays 10am - 4pm Saturdays 11am - 1pm For further information on Crossroads Church or Hope Charitique check our website www.crossroads-church.co.uk or telephone 0115 9524037

Sport & Leisure WEST SIDE STORY & WIZARD OF OZ TASTER SESSIONS

New Youth Theatre are putting the finishing touches to their current productions “Disco Inferno” & “Alice in Wonderland” that are being performed at local theatres during November & December 2010. They will then be gearing up for their next two productions “West Side Story” and “The Wizard of Oz”. They are looking for enthusiastic youngsters (aged 3-16) to join them when rehearsals commence January 2011. The New Youth Theatre concept is simple. Children aged between the ages of 3-16 years are taught how to develop and improve their performing arts skills whilst rehearsing for a fully staged musical each term. There are up to three shows a year and the shows are performed at local theatres. This unique approach to musical theatre brings children of all ages together to enjoy learning new skills, have fun and be on-stage! Classes run in Mansfield, Bestwood Village or West Bridgford and taster sessions for both shows will take place in December 2010. To find out more call Neil or Vicky on 01623 406284 or visit
