Positive Pants in print

It’s back to books on Girls Around Town this weekend…

Or, to be more precise, to one book in particular!

Claire Clements will be on the phone to the studio in the second hour of the show for her first catch up with June since early March.

Back then, she had news of an award for the work she does pointing parents in the right direction towards helping their kids feel empowered in a fun and creative way, under the Put On Your Positive Pants banner.

Claire will have details of the activities she’s been running recently, together with information about what’s on the cards for the coming weeks and months.

But most importantly of all, she’ll be taking time out on a very busy day to share one very exciting piece of news…

That the launch of her first book coincides with the conversation she and June will be having!!

Written by Claire herself, of course, and illustrated by Debra Webster, Put On Your Positive Pants tells the story of Holly, who wakes up feeling sad and, with the help of mum and some handy tips, learns to understand her emotions and grow a more positive mindset.

Described by Sunday Times bestselling author and speaker Paul McGee as ‘an engaging and entertaining read for children learning to understand their emotions and the journey to positivity’, it goes on sale from Sunday and Claire will be giving listeners a taste of what they’ll find in its pages to help them do just that.

So if you’re a mum, a dad or a grandparent, make sure you Put On Your Sunday Best by in tuning to to 107.8FM or listening online, on the free apps or on Alexa from just after 11.10am

And don’t forget to put on your positive pants too!!

A day out with a difference – anyone for axe throwing?

It’s too soon to check the weather forecast for early autumn right now, of course.

But one thing’s for sure – this week’s guests on Girls Around Town will be keeping everything crossed that the sun is shining over one Nottinghamshire village in mid-September!!

Charles Brightmore and Paul Cotter have joined forces to put together an action-packed programme for the Little Carlton Village Fete on Sunday 12 September

And they’re joining forces this Sunday too, when they pick up the phone to call the studio and tell June all about what’s in store.

Plenty of things for the kids to do, with a chance to get up close to a python, a tarantula, a meerkat and more just one of the activities they’ll be sure to love.

Or if that’s not for you, how about taking a ride on a tractor, getting a pic of you and your partner sitting in a pair of stocks (wet sponges optional there!), guessing the weight of a tup or trying your hand at axe throwing?

There’ll be lots of food and drink on offer too, from a ploughman’s or a panini to afternoon teas or ice cream, washed down with tea, soft drinks and craft ales.

You’ll find all this and and a whole lot more going on between 11am and 5pm – far too much to list right here in fact, so don’t forget to Put On Your Sunday Best and tune in to 107.8FM or listen online from just after 11.10am this weekend to hear what the guys have to say.

Make sure you put that other Sunday in your diary as well to help Charles, Paul and everyone else taking part in the fete raise much-needed funds for the Lincs/Notts Air Ambulance

All while you’re enjoying a fun-filled family day out!

A blooming good day out at Belvoir Castle!

Have you seen the weather forecast for this weekend?

Sunny and a gentle breeze here in the East Midlands, with temperatures up to 260C – perfect for a family day out, especially if you’re planning to head over to Belvoir Castle for this year’s Flower & Garden Show!

Someone who’ll definitely be there is Andy Tudbury of course, the organiser of the event since it first launched back in 2019

And he’ll be taking a short break from his official duties to give June a quick call in the first hour of this week’s Girls Around Town.

Andy will be on the phone to the studio with an update on some of the things visitors enjoyed on Saturday, together with details of what to expect if you’ve got tickets for Sunday.

It’s not just about flowers and gardens, although of course there’ll be plenty of fabulous displays to see on that front.

If you were listening in a couple of weeks ago, you’ll have heard him describing all the other things you can see and do – and buy! – in the beautiful setting of Belvoir, with everything from sculpture artists, tools, garden furniture and crafts retailers to live music and a range of food and refreshments on offer.

Don’t forget to tune in to 107.8FM or listen online to hear what Andy has to say from just after 10.20am

He’ll be dashing off to get back to business fairly quickly but make sure you stay tuned in till 12 noon for more of your Sunday Best with June!
