In this issue, the Christmas edition, we aim to inspire your seasonal appetite with our range of festive foods, tipples, shopping and experiences. We take a look at some unique shopping opportunities provided by the beautifully quaint towns of Bawtry and Southwell that top and tail our region. Both are great destinations for that ‘little something different’ whilst keeping it local too. And why not explore what our region has to offer on your travels with all the seasonal wonders of what lies between. There’s a touch of magic in the air, so why not delve into the What’s On section to discover the events that tickle your fancy. Light switch ons and experiences with Santa are just some of the festivities to look forward to as we head towards winter. Don’t forget to visit www.innorthnotts.co.uk for even more. Here’s wishing you all a wonderful end to the year. The team at Made really do hope you enjoy this final edition of 2018 as we look forward to 2019, the last year of the teenies.
The 6th edition of Made, marking our first full year, and it’s been a busy one. Our passion and dedication to North Notts has been echoed by our contributors and supporters who’ve helped us so far, so we send out a huge thank you to all.
In this issue we have our fantastic regular features, beautiful berry recipes from Teresa Bovey, Sally Outram takes us on a walk starting off in the picturesque conservation village of Laxton and Sarah Louise has a few beauty essentials to get us summer ready, just to mention a few.
All the best in lifestyle and events for the North Notts region and beyond. We have a jam-packed May/June edition that covers a myriad of fantastic people in our area. There’s Wayne Caddy the renowned baker who teaches at the School of Artisan Food. We visit Julian Bray, an artist based in Mansfield, and we speed around to Jake Taylor and his lifelong obsession with the wheel. We also have a real treat with some lovely and light recipes from food demonstrator and home economist, Teresa Bovey. As the summer approaches we’ve tried to fit in a few of the festivals in the area, there’s a lot going on, so let’s get out and enjoy our region. We’ll see you out there!
We delve into the most minute detail of our local photomicrographer Spike Walker and his amazing world through the microscope. Travel writer and photographer Sally Outram has a walk that takes a path through Newark, perfect for a fresh spring day, and when you have worked up an appetite, Teresa Bovey has a wonderful lamb dish and chocolate mousse to inspire the chefs at home. Finally, to keep everyone feeling and looking their best, our resident beauty writer Sarah Louise makes colour play for the new season much less daunting, with advice and tips on makeup and products.
In this issue we would like to introduce you to home economist and food demonstrator, Teresa Bovey. We have picked some winter warmers in our fashion section and our beauty columnist, Sarah Louise, has a few tips on keeping everything just as it should be in the winter months ahead. Richard Hartley spares us some time to tell us about his classical guitar making, Ye Olde Bell’s head chef makes a stunning dish for us and The National Trust welcomes us into Mr Straw’s House.
