Stormzy wason song at the Mobo Awards

Mum’s the Word: Moo-sic to my ears at Christmas

“ He’s a cow, what do I need?” Not an insult, but something I overheard at the school gates which can only mean one thing: It is nearly time for the Nativity, and I don’t mean the film with Martin Freeman.

The cathedral at Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like.... - Michael Cross, Peterborough Music Hub Programme Manager

A s the song goes, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas….” (well it has for weeks now, I know), but suddenly it sounds like it too, with Christmas music playing almost everywhere you go.

June now seems like a distant memory, but the mantra “Strong and stable” from the General Election is still a very present one.

Is it time Peterborough got a Sunday farmers’ market?

You may have noticed at the start of this week that a number of chalet-like stalls began being set up in Cathedral Square, writes Peterborough Telegraph columnist and city chef Lee Clarke.

SWANNY’S WORLD OF SPORT: Everton fans are barking, the new unacceptable face of FIFA, boring rugby league and my hero of the week

Everton fans barking against the appointment of Sam Allardyce as their manager are arrogant and deluded.

Parveen The Spice Queen: Romantic meals with Asian elegance

It seems that love is in the air...no, I am not talking about the 1978 song by John Paul Young, gosh - I am showing my age now! I am actually referring to our own Prince Harry getting engaged to the beautiful Megan Markle. It’s lovely to celebrate some positive news with so much doom and gloom around.

Cllr John Holdich

Let’s stand up for Peterborough

Last week I launched a campaign calling for the support of as many people in the city as possible as we lobby the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) for fairer funding in order to protect frontline services, writes Peterborough City Council leader John Holdich.

Football chiefs must tackle racial abuse on Peterborough’s pitches

Local football is not for the faint-hearted. Until you’ve been chased around a pitch by a borderline psychopath who, despite having a criminal record, feels picking up a yellow card has besmirched his good name, you haven’t lived. Or nearly died.

Ben Stokes has cost England the Ashes.

SWANNY’S WORLD OF SPORT: Stokes is a villain, Sterling is a hero, another Ausse bashing on the way, big club bias, Hamilton is the Formula One equivalent of Celtic

I have no doubt Ben Stokes will be given a hero’s welcome when he returns to the England cricket team.

SWANNY’S WORLD OF SPORT: Inane rather than entertaining, BT cricket commentators need to learn from Sky’s peerless coverage
