Get your bike, we're all going for a ride

It’s started. My eight year old asked me for an iPhone. Actually, the tone of the question seemed more of a demand. Then the reasoning began before I’d even had chance to say, “NO!”. She continues with her demands, “But ALL my friends have one, or at least a tablet!”. “No, maybe when you’re a bit older” replies the hostage. What I’m really thinking is, “when you’re 18 and can afford to buy one and pay the bills yourself”.

Museum re-opens

Wadebridge and District Museum originally opened in 2007 but closed in 2010 due to development on the site.

However, the museum was given space in Trebur House, a new development in Wadebridge on the corner of Cross Street and Chapel Lane, and re-opened on 28th September 2013.

It's opening hours are 11 am to 3 pm, Monday to Saturday.
