It is a conversation with Nottingham living historian Robin Hood, Tony Rotherham that began this journey and the film. Could the Arboretum really be the inspiration of Neverland? JM Barrie once lived very nearby in his tenured youth working for the Nottingham Journal albeit for only a brief 2 years. Barrie apparently walked each day to the city offices through the arboretum, full of beautiful trees and open spaces that today now more than 100 hundred…

Hair yesterday, gone today!

Hair yesterday, gone today!

When one reaches a certain age as a bloke one can expect to find hair receding. This was and is something altogether different!
