A day out in Bournemouth with National Express and the ODDBODS

Nigel Clarke

On Wednesday we were invited to become a tourist in our home town with National Express and the ODDBODS, hosted by children’s TV Presenter Nigel Clarke.

For the last three years… Continue Reading “Sebastian’s Star Wars inspired 5th Birthday Party with Dr Balloonman”

We have been fans of Urban Reef restaurant since it opened although we seem to pop in for a cheeky lunch date when the kids are at school, rather than visit for an evening meal these days. Urban Reef describes itself as an ‘informal bar, deli, cafe and restaurant’ located next to the beach on Boscombe Promenade and we love it because it gives us the chance to go for a bracing walk along the beach with a special hot… Continue Reading “New Summer Menu at Urban Reef”
