Poppy And Jack's Nursery

22 Black Bull La, Fulwood, Preston PR2 3PX, UK – 01772 719689

I can not rate this nursery highly enough. We have had pleasant enough experience in nurseries with my eldest and for a short time with my second(interspersed with a few bad experiences too, hence the change), absolutely nothing compares to Hillcrest. My son has always been a happy, confident child but even he has come along in leaps and bounds since starting here, he is encouraged to express himself, to do as he pleases and learn new things - always under very competent and loving supervision. It amazes me how well they know each child and how individually they treat them, children always come first here! The outdoor areas cater for every age group and they are *always* out there, rain or shine. My son comes home with so many stories and has truly loved every minute here. I am so sad that we have to leave for him to join school but I am so thankful that we found this place, my worries considerably lessened as soon as he started here, a huge must for all parents! I could gush for hours but honestly just go and look, observe them for five minutes and see how every staff member is completely concentrating on the children and thoroughly enjoying their job.

I can't say enough good things about this wonderful nursery and its staff. Absolutely fantastic, in every way, shape and form. My son loves it and he has learnt so much. He has grown in confidence, self expression, communication and learnt so much through having fun. A***** He loves the outside area and the garden room and log cabin room. Staff are friendly, brilliant with the children and all round shinning examples of what a nursery should be like and run.

What a lovely nursery First Steps is. The staff are very caring and attentive and our cheekly little boy had great fun and was really well looked after for the 2 years he attended. He enjoyed his time there and really came out of his shell with new people. He thinks the world of First Steps.

The Lancashire Wine School

Holiday Inn Preston, Ring Way, Preston PR1 3AU, UK – 01253 301934

I bought my friend a wine tasting voucher for Christmas and she loved the event. Colin made us feel so welcome and created a welcoming, friendly atmosphere. I've attended a few more events since and each one is different, but each one is outstanding - the best value night out in Preston

The courses run by the Lancashire Wine School are fantastically good fun, for both newcomers to wine and more knowledgeable drinkers. I attended the 10 week world of wine course and found it an excellent way to learn more about the regional variations in wine produced around the world. I have always been a French wine fan and didn’t believe any other kind could compare but I was pleasantly surprised to find many wines from both the New and Old world to be not only comparable but in some instances better! Each night Colin chose a broad selection of the wine produced from a country, all bought from local supermarkets and shops and at reasonable prices. He infected us with his enthusiasm and by the end of each evening all of us were excitedly debating that night’s wines and our thoughts on wine in general. I would thoroughly recommend any of Colin’s courses!

University of Central Lancashire

Fylde Rd, Preston PR1 2HE, UK – 01772 201201

No other Fine Art dept like it. Think as big as you want... it's happening.

A Town Centre campus except it doesn't feel like a campus rather a collection of buildings with other non university businesses in the mix. There are many older buildings but is obvious the University is attempting to "build" a central core of facilities. The Forster building contains Refectory, shops and Cafe bar. The Sports Centre is impressive and close by. Student Union looks to have good facilities and is central. Halls of Residence are about 15 minutes walk from the Central buildings. Majority are set in blocks of flats with surrounding landscaping eith grass to sit on. All the rooms offer the basics and not much else. In a few years time with more redevelopment of the area this will become a good edge of town centre campus.
