Run by thousands of small local organisations and volunteers, Heritage Open Days gives everyone free access to experiences and events across England.

Each year, places right across the country throw open their doors and give people the chance to see hidden places and try new experiences for free. Many events will adopt this year’s theme ... Astounding Inventions. Alongside stories of wonders, the festival will also highlight some of the blunders, fads and outright failures that pepper England’s rich history of innovation. Liam Montgomery, Heritage Open Days Marketing & Projects Manager says: ‘We’re thrilled to be focusing on inventions for this year’s festival, as they offer such an exciting lens for examining heritage. From the humble chocolate bar to the WorldWide Web, England has an incredibly diverse history of innovation and discovery.We wanted to celebrate this by sharing stories from across the regions to really showcase the ingenuity and hard work behind them. Once again, we’re very excited to see what our community put together!” Events registered so far include: Tilehurst Bell Ringing, Reading, Berkshire - celebrating the great British invention of church bell change-ringing, The British Lawnmower Museum, Southport, Lancashire - At the cutting edge - the astounding invention of the lawnmower. The History of Gas - Beverley, North Yorkshire - Internationally acclaimed historian of gas, Professor Russell Thomas, will present for a talk on the origins and development of the industry.

British Vintage Wireless and Television Museum - London From rare pre-war radios to the television sets you might recall seeing at your grandparents’ house. Last year more than 44,000 local organisers and volunteers ran 4,000 events across the country.

Make summer a breeze with our handy holiday hacks Whether home or abroad, we asked our fellow Raring2go! Editors to tell us what useful items they always pack to help make travelling with the family that little bit easier… *Use a fitted bedsheet as a playpen on the beach. * Hide valuables inside a (clean!) nappy. *Take a multi plug extension when going abroad, you then only need one adapter but can use all the plugs. * Use an insulated flask to keep icepops frozen for longer. * Pack a coolbag when going away. * Mosquito bands/coils have been a lifesaver for us. * Definitely take tin foil to use as black out on the windows. * Plastic stacking cups kept my little one amused for ages whether on the beach, in water or in the room. * We always bring a backpack that doubles as a car-seat. It means we always have a safe travel option plus the kids can also use it to carry their belongings. * Carrots are perfect beach food! Easy to clean if they get dropped in the sand, and no melting or making a mess! * Take some clothes pegs. Handy for keeping swimwear from blowing off balconies, fastening food bags for the beach/pool, and keeping towels on sun loungers if it ’s a bit blowy. I always have them in my beach bag. *Always carry a pack of cards and dominoes. So many games the whole family can play. *We take a foldable, fabric storage box so we can easily throw the toys into it at the end of each day to keep the room tidy.

FLOWER WINDMILLS INSTRUCTIONS 1 You will need to create a square from your paper. You could do this by first folding your paper into a triangle by taking one corner and lining it up with the other. This will leave extra on one side that you can cut off. Decorate your paper using colours and shapes, or whatever your imagination can think of! Remember to decorate both sides. Fold your paper in half and crease slightly. Then fold the paper in the opposite direction and again crease slightly. Cut along the creases about halfway to the centre of the paper. Be careful not to cut all the way. Bend each corner into the middle. Avoid folding as your flower won’t turn as well. Stick your blue tack onto the side of the straw, near one of the ends. Fold all four corners into the centre, place your bun case on top then push your split pin along with the corners though the centre of your bun case, through the straw and into the blue tack. You have now created your flower windmill!

Here’s how you make this delicious Trifle! Step 1: Gingerbread men: place the butter, muscovado sugar in a medium sized saucepan and heat gently until the butter has melted and the muscovado sugar has dissolved. Stir until the mixture blends together but do not boil. Step 2: Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and ginger together then beat it into the muscovado sugar mixture with the golden syrup until smooth. Step 3: Turn mixture out onto cling film and pat into a flat ball. Wrap tightly and chill for 30 mins or until firm enough to roll out. Step 4: Heat the oven to 190°C (170°C Fan, Gas Mark 5). Line two baking trays with baking parchment. Step 5: Dust the work top with flour and roll out the dough to the thickness of a one pound coin. Cut out your gingerbread men (or whatever shape you like) and place on the baking trays. Step 6: Bake 10-12 minutes until just turning slightly darker at the edges. Step 7: Leave to cool on the baking tray for 10 minutes then slide the gingerbread men onto a cooling rack to cool completely. Step 8: Next prepare the gingerbread sponge. Preheat oven to 150°C (fan 140°C, gas mark 2). Grease and line two 8 sandwich tins. Step 9: Melt the butter, molasses sugar, milk and marmalade, in a pan over a low heat, then leave to cool. Step 10: Mix the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl and make a hollow in the centre. Slowly pour in the melted mixture, stirring all the time, to form a smooth batter. Step 11: Beat in the eggs, then stir in the ginger and sultanas or raisins. Step 12: Pour into the prepared cake tins and bake for 30 minutes or until risen and firm in the centre. Cool in the tin. Step 13: Once the cakes are cooled, crumble or slice them and fill the base of your trifle bowl with a layer of gingerbread sponge (save some back for another layer) Step 14: Place the gingerbread men around the edge of the bowls with the details (faces) positioned facing outwards. Then add the next layer of your trifle, the caramel topped with the custard. Step 15: Use the remaining crumbled cake for the next layer, keeping back a small amount for the decoration on top of the trifle. Step 16: Whip the cream to a soft peak and top the trifle with it, spread it to cover the whole surface. Finish by sprinkling the remaining gingerbread crumbs on top. Raring2make!

We’re very excited about our new website section ‘Activities at Home’. It’s home to a heady mix of sleeves rolled up, hands-on ‘Make & Do’ activities as well as lots of fun to make ‘Recipes’ that will suit all ages, abilities and most importantly when it comes to food.... tastebuds. Whatever Activity at Home you choose to do with us, we know you’re going to have hours of fun doing it. Activities at Home is the new GO-TO section of our website for when the Great British weather does what it does best and disagrees (often at the last minute) with the forecast. Activities at Home could be the solution for when the sun should be shining but isn’t. It’s already full to bursting with some really great content with more being added everyday. It’s content that will save the day when when energy levels may be a tad lower than normal and there is a need for a slightly more sedate, leisurely activity to keep everyone occupied.We think #BoredomBustingFunis a brilliangt description! All of the content in this section maximise engagement among children and make it as ‘sticky’ as possible.We don’t mean sticky as in messy but as in ‘stickability’! *(children’s ability to persevere with something through to the end).We want to provide heaps of great ideas & suggestions for fun, enjoyable and stimulating activities to keep children engrossed as they create ‘something’ they can proudly share with others. Whether it be a recipe they’ve made to share with the family later or a colouring-in sheet that they will proudly attach in pride of place on the fridge door. There are already hundreds of fun and tasty, easy to follow recipes there already and more are being added every single day. In Make or Do we’ve got fun, simple and jaw-dropping science experiments, colouring in and activity sheets, puzzles, quizzes, step by step guides to making fun ‘stuff ’ from Jubilee flags to soap powered boats plus lots more. #TakeaPeek Now, it might be that you have an incredible idea we could include in Activities at Home. Or perhaps there’s something you do as a family that works really well at keeping the little ones engaged. If so, please share with us and in turn we ‘ll share with everyone else so they too can enjoy it. If you’ve got a go-to recipe you always rely on that your children love, then please let us know.We really would love to share it!
