If you're looking for something to do on a day out, we paid a visit to the Kennet Horse Boat Company for a bit of nostalgia and a little further afield, Bletchley Park, the home of the Second World War codebreakers, provides a fascinating insight into that period of history. You could also win a family ticket to Bletchley Park and a family ticket to Blenheim Palace, both valid for as many visits as you like within a 12 month period.
The Berkshire Farm Girl Eleanor Gilbert, Barton Court riverkeeper Nick Richards and Newbury gardener David Cole keep us up-to-date on the seasons and, continuing the environmental theme, we take a look at the dwindling bee population and what we can all do in our gardens to sustain these important insects.
The director of the Newbury Spring Festival tells us about the programme he has put together for the festival, which this year will run in September and we've got lots of food news and reviews - from perfect picnics to delicious recipes from Mrs B and Honesty.
If you're having a clear out, find out if your old vinyl albums might have some value and there are also four pages of events coming up over the summer, which hopefully will provide plenty of inspiration.
Pick up your free copy of Out & About from supermarkets and stores in and around Newbury and surrounding villages.
