Football clubs helping to tackle knife crime in Nottinghamshire with new #LivesNotKnives campaign All three of Nottinghamshire’s professional football clubs are supporting a local campaign, #LivesNotKnives, to highlight the dangers of carrying a knife and to help start the conversation of knife crime with a loved one.

Easter Holidays - Cadbury World Today saw our School Holiday club day out at Cadbury World. As we drove here we came through the original Bournville Village and saw the houses that were built for the Cadbury workers back in the late 1880s. Once inside Cadbury World we met a giant creme egg, wrote our names in chocolate, tested melted chocolate and went on the 4D Cadbury Experience ride! We toured around the original factory building and saw some of the old chocolate making machines as well as the time tunnel of advertising. All in all a very jam packed and yet really enjoyable day! Liam Blower age 8 said 'I liked tasting the chocolate and going on the rides!'
