Couldn’t have asked for more caring, funny and experienced staff to look after our daughter. She absolutely loves it here and has developed developed so much over the last 3 years. The staff are always willing to help and we can feel confident that our daughter is always in safe hands.

The Hampton Day Nursery and Pre-School

Hargate Way, Hampton Hargate,, Peterborough PE7 8BZ, UK – 01733 566321

My Son has been attending Busy Bees in Hampton since May 2017. He began with settling in sessions which were a brilliant way for him to get used to the nursery setting and staff. He formed a brilliant relationship with his key worker in the baby room and I continue to feel at ease with his progress now as he has entered the pre-toddler room. The staff are all fantastic - no question or query is a problem. I receive daily updates through the online system and feedback on collection of what my Son has eaten, length of nap, nappy changes and activities. The key workers post observations of learning and development on the online parent system which is wonderful to see and eases the guilt of having to work! I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone looking for a friendly local environment where you can feel at ease knowing your child is well looked after.

My daughter started at Busy bees in November after moving to Peterborough. From the very start, all of the staff from reception to key workers with the children have been extremely helpful and have made Brooke feel at home and put me at ease with knowing she will be more than ready to start school in September. Brooke is also vegan and they have worked around that and cooked alternatives for her without any fuss. I couldn't be more thankful for all of their help daily with the progress of getting Brooke ready for school, I have noticed just how much she has grown up in the past few months and I know a lot of it is down to the guidance and examples set whilst she has been attending.

K2 Driving School

60 Deerleap, Peterborough PE3 9YB, UK – 01733 334201

Passed my test this morning with only 3 minors. Thanks to Gary at K2 for being a great teacher. I thought me being 44 would go against me when it came to learning, but he knew just the right approach to get me through it. Would definitely recommend this driving school.

Gary from K2 was my instructor. He is the best instructor for anyone who wants to learn from scratch. He's been v encouraging and supportive. He made sure that I got the basics right. Even with the manoeuvres, his reference points were v easy to understand. I've learnt with other instructors in the past, but actually got the hang of driving when I started lessons with Gary. He would always end the lesson with a debrief session which helped me understand the areas tht I had mistakes. If you want to take up driving lessons or even polish your skills, Gary is the person you need to get in touch with. It's an investment. And something you'll never forget. Thanks Gary. Thanks so much!!

Peterborough Martial Arts Academy

4, Wainman Rd, Peterborough PE2 7BU, UK – 01733 235230

Fantastic club...since my son has started have noticed that his confidence has grown. The coaches are friendly but very professional with the kids and its really brought him out of himself. He is very proud of his achievements as are we and he is really looking forward to his journey to become a black belt. My husband has also joined and enjoys training there its a very friendly club and he has made some good friends. Family night is my sons favourite night as he gets to train with his dad and the advantage is we can watch and have a cuppa in the seating area. Would recommend anyone to give it a go....

After trying several other classes in the local area I wanted to find a class more aimed at my daughters age (6 yrs old) from the very first class we were made to feel welcome and my other two children were invited to join in. The instructors took the time to speak to us and the children and offered us a few extra free lessons so we could be confident the children were enjoying it and that it was for us before we signed up to any monthly fee (this is not a contract and is optional) You can pay as you go. My children really enjoy the lessons they find these fun but at the same time they are progressing really well. There is a very good ratio of instructors to students so all the children have the opportunity to learn a new technique and practice these within the lesson. I have even started the family class myself, I hold several belts in other disciplines but have to say the TaeKwonDo really challenges me with regards to fitness and skill. As a family we couldn't be happier with the academy we have chosen and look forward to the times ahead.

Dobbies

Cygnet Park, Phorpres Way, Peterborough PE7 8FZ, UK – 01733 898640

Afternoon tea review. Last visited in June 2017 and to be honest, was not impressed so I was not expecting much from this visit. Was very surprised then with what received, all of which was good! I bought some clotted cream with me as there was none for the scones last time but it was not needed this time as we were each given a little pot. Nice sandwiches, nice cakes, nice venue.

Just home from Dobbies after having AFTERNOON TEA. Service was excellent. I felt like a VIP for a while. Nice fresh sandwiches and scones. I had cakes with no chocolate as I am allergic to it. Plenty of tea or coffee. You did yourselves proud Dobbies. I will return.
