Forest Recycling Project

Last week was the first time I’d ever been into the Forest Recycling Project (FRP) on Bakers Avenue, near the Bakers Arms. What a cracking find it was too. FRP is situated next to the Hornbeam Cafe.

Farewell to The Stow Aquarium

Sad news to report here. The Stow Aquarium on Queen’s Road is closing down. The shop has been there for over 60 years, but it’s now closing down. We’re gutted about this – the staff were always super-helpful and really friendly. Stow Scene’s own fish (before the little lad went up to fishy heaven) enjoyed a variety of delicious treats from there. It’s never good when a local independent shop closes in one’s area. I walk past the Stow Aquarium every […]
