Amazing events at Royal Arsenal Riverside this Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend!

Two AMAZING events at Royal Arsenal Riverside and Kidbrooke Village this Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend!

Can you believe how fast June is approaching already? I can’t deal!
Before we know it, it’ll be the summer holidays! Speaking of summer holiday, I need to start planning whether we want to go abroad or not for mine and Little Man’s birthday. The idea was to go Athens but the cost of travelling, travel restrictions and spending money will have to be reviewed again.

Festival vibes in Greenwich this Platinum Jubilee Weekend

I can’t believe we are already celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. It didn’t feel that long ago that she had her Diamond Jubilee! As with every Jubilee there will be plenty of places all around London with joyous celebrations and street parties. The kids are SO excited and as the Thursday kicks off the bank holiday, I’ll get a chance to be off work early and take the kids out to places we’ve still been meaning to explore.

Stop buying, start borrowing! Library of Things Woolwich now open to local residents

Are you tired of buying things that you only end up using once then it goes into the murky depths of your storage cupboards? Have you ever wished that there could be a place where you can rent household items and then hand back once you’re done? If the answer’s yes to either of those questions then sign up online and get yourself down to your local Library of Things.

Whether it’s a pasta making machine or a sewing machine you’re after, you’re bound to find something you can borrow. There are a number of places in London (which I am sure will soon expand rapidly!) which have opened up over the years and it’s now arrived in the neighbourhood of Woolwich.

The Greenwich Mummy Blog Exclusive - M&S Foodhall reopens in Woolwich

Everybody loves M&S Foods, it’s a well-known fact. I’ve yet to hear someone telling me that they don’t like their food or drink. When I found out that Marks and Spencer were returning to Woolwich I was so happy. I’ve only been a Greenwich Mummy for a couple of years, I’ve actually been a Plumstead Common/Woolwich resident for over a decade so knew the old M&S store very well. I was very fond of it too, as was my dad.

When LO was born, we were still living in Plumstead Common. It’s not the greatest area to live in and the estate was practically derelict but the one thing it had a lot of was the sense of belonging – feeling like a part of a community. Something a lot of these flashy new-build flats and estates lack. Anywho, for as long as I can remember there was always a Marks and Spencer in Woolwich so when it closed its doors in 2014, we all felt a little very disappointed.

Marks & Spencer Christmas Food To Order: Last day for orders is December 15th by 5PM
Don’t forget you can choose delivery or collection at your local store

Last Wednesday 7th December 2016 at 10am M&S store manager, Calvin Sheridan reopened the doors of the high street store. What I loved most about this reopening was that a lot (maybe even the majority) of the staff members were from the original store that closed down. To me that demonstrates that M&S cares for the community and its employees. As an ex-M&S Foods employee, it makes me happy to know that the values and ethics of the company are still be upheld by new management.
