Let’s get positive

June‘s got hers at the ready – this Sunday‘s guest definitely never leaves home without hers…

So you’d better make sure you put on your own positive pants when you join them for Girls Around Town this week!

Live in the studio for the first time since early 2020, Put On Your Positive Pants‘ Claire Clements will be looking back at some recent highlights as well as looking forward to what’s on the cards for the coming months.

She’ll have the latest news of her best-selling book, published at the end of July, as well as details of some of the events she’s been running recently.

And if you’ve got kids, you’ll certainly want to hear the tips and activities she’ll be sharing to help boost their wellbeing through the coming winter months.

Rounding off Claire’s latest on-air chat, the focus switches from positve pants to crafty pants, her exciting new collaboration with The Inky Nook which brings mindfulness and wellbeing crafts to your doorstep.

Designed to help children express and control their feelings as they lose themselves in their ideas, thoughts and play, the Crafty Pants box is aimed at kids from six to 10 and is perfect for them to enjoy on their own, with a friend or with a sibling.

Find out more on 107.8FM, on the apps, on Alexa or online from just after 11.10am this weekend…

And don’t forget to join June from 10am for all the usual news, views and great music here on Your Sunday Best!

Getting ready for a fortnight of festivals

Are you feeling festive?

Don’t panic, you don’t need to be thinking about Christmas for a while yet – but the festival season is just around the corner and here in the East Midlands it’s time to get ready for festival fortnight!

Not one but two well-known events are in the final stages of preparation right now and if you’re into reading or gardening – or both! – mid July has plenty to offer for the whole family.

First up, from Thursday 8 to Sunday 11 July, the Newark Book Festival returns to various venues across the town…

And it’s closely followed by the Belvoir Castle Flower & Garden Show, which takes place on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 July.

Want to find out a bit more about what to expect? You need to join June next week, when she’s back behind the mic chatting to Andy Tudbury and Becky Goddard-Hill between 10am and 12 noon.

Andy will be on the phone just after 10.20am with the latest news about the Flower & Garden Show in the grounds of the magnificent Belvoir Castle.

Be prepared for a weekend of colour and inspiration for those with a love of gardening, featuring everything from sculpture artists, tools, garden furniture and crafts retailers to live music and a range of food and refreshments…

Along with the opportunity to get your gardening questions answered by expert horticulturists in the Lets Talk area.

Then at 11.10am it’s Becky’s turn to ring the studio to talk about one of the many activities taking place when the Book Festival comes to town once more.

If you’re a mum, a dad or a grandparent, you’ll want to hear what she has to say about Create Your Own Kindness, her latest book that’s packed with fun activities to inspire kids to be kinder to themselves, others and the planet.

Find out how they can take part in the event she’s running on Saturday 10 July – an hour of activities available both online and on the large screen at the National Civil War Centre – and how to get tickets to join in the fun.

Make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening online for all this and more when you Put On Your Sunday Best again next weekend!

Put on your positive pants!

Don’t forget to put on your Sunday Best this weekend – from 10am to 12 noonGirls Around Town will be back on air…

And just like June and guest Claire Clements, make sure you’ve got your positive pants on too!

It’s Mother’s Day this Sunday of course, so what could be more appropriate than a catch-up with someone whose business is all about pointing mums – and dads – in the right direction towards helping their kids feel empowered in a fun and creative way?

Claire will be on the phone to the studio from 11.10am with the latest news from Positively Empowered Kids, her award-winning network of dedicated and inspiring experts all working to support the next generation.

Top of the list no doubt will be the online Neurodiversity event for parents, which takes place on Zoom and Facebook from 7.30pm every evening between Monday 15 and Friday 19 March.

An opportunity to explore and learn new and different approaches to support and celebrate neurodiversity, this week-long event will be rounded off on Saturday 20 March by a day of workshops for both parents and children, together with a panel event featuring some of the amazing young people Claire and her group have connected with recently.

For more details of this and other upcoming activities with kids at the forefront, make sure you join June and Claire this weekend…

There’s a rumour going round that Claire will have news of a prestigious award too but you’ll need to tune in to 107.8FM or listen online to find out all about that!
