An Evening of Gaming, Pizza and More Gaming

I go away and all hell breaks loose in Bude with people partying and enjoying themselves, and even eating pizza while they play!  So, well done to Bude Computers for this mega event which looks like a great place to be for people of all ages interested in gaming. Here is something which will appeal to young people in Bude, too. Great news. So, firstly, what is a LAN Party?  A LAN Party is essentially just a group of people with their computers connected to each other, LAN Parties have declined due to the advances in...

#Bude Students Visit Torrington

On Thursday, 22nd January 2015, the year 5 and 6 pupils at St Petroc’s School stepped back in time to the English Civil War. On their arrival at Torrington they were greeted by Master Christopher and Mistress Agnes, and together they introduced the children to the world of 1646. As part of the experience the pupils were able to handle a variety of weapons including a ‘flintlock’ musket and a ‘rapier’, some pupils were invited to try on the clothes of the period, and for some pupils, they were lucky enough to don the armour used in battle....

If Anyone Needs Me, I’ll Be in Bed

It is with a heavy, heavy heart that I acknowledge the news that Rogue is no more. I’ve spoken before of my love for Bude’s premier nightspot (albeit whilst gently taking the proverbial), and will be kind of sorry to see it go. I’ve loved that club since I first moved here eleven years ago. Back then it was called Kazbar (I sadly missed the Jokers era) and was a sort of empty room with a bar and some tables and plastic chairs on a raised platform. If I remember correctly, there was a little bit of linoleum up one end that...

Suzanne’s Roasted Broccoli Soup

Suzanne’s Roasted Broccoli Soup

After being served thinly sliced broccoli stalks on top of pork I was very taken with the amount of flavour in these usually discarded parts of the broccoli. I decided to write and test a recipe for roasted broccoli soup but unlike the usual with potatoes, and sometimes onions, this is all about the flavour packed broccoli that is also packing a nutrient punch. The addition of nuts add a creaminess and lots of nutrients without any dairy or carbohydrate. You can spice it up with chilli, lemon and mint or if feeling indulgent some slices of...

Confirmed – #Bude Strand Application is for Premier Inn

For some time now, people have been understandably complaining about the he eyesore that is the empty Strand Hotel at the entrance to Bude. Well, it could be transformed if a planning application for a Premier Inn is approved. The application was lodged with Cornwall Council before Christmas. Richard Pearson, Acquisitions Manager for Premier Inn, said:   ‘We are delighted to be working in partnership with Stoford as we bring forward plans to regenerate the former Strand Hotel. Our proposals would deliver a 55-bedroom Premier Inn which, if...
