Attending The Grand Opening Of Mighty Claws Adventure Golf

*Gifted Tickets

We were recently invited to attend a VIP grand opening of the new Mighty Claws Adventure Golf in Hedge End, Southampton which we jumped at the chance of going to as we knew Jake would have a blast playing crazy golf for the first time. 

Located at Hedge End Golf Centre, Mighty Claws Adventure golf is the latest to be built with the other two sites at Bournemouth and Colchester.

What We Learnt From Being First-Timers At Disney World

Disney World is a place that had been on my wishlist since I was about 5 years old. I remember begging my Dad to take me and dreaming of seeing Cinderella’s castle in real life. However, with Orlando being so far from us and the costs involved, it just never happened. So, when my husband announced that he had a work conference in Florida coming up we jumped at the chance of making it a family holiday too… and of course, planned Disney World into our second week!

Coral Reef Waterworld was our favourite place for swimming when Jake was younger. I would happily drive the 40 minutes from Basingstoke to Bracknell to enjoy the fun of the pools, jacuzzi, rapids, pirate ship, slide and so much more. I loved it because it was the warmest pool I had ever visited which is always important when you have babies or small children, Continue reading “Review | Coral Reef Waterworld, Bracknell”
