Nottingham Loves

A few months back I entered the Nottingham Young Creative Award 2014, with my poem 'The Things I Love About Nottingham'. The award ceremony took place on 19th May, due to unforeseen circumstances I was unable to attend the event, however I am very pleased to say that I won the Creative Writing 16-18 category! 

The LeftLion have also published this poem.

The things I love about Nottingham,
Well where shall I begin?
When I think of special places,
I get a warmth within.

I was born at Nottingham’s QMC,
The first teaching hospital in the UK.
And until February 2012,
It was the largest of its day.

Then off to Leahurst Road Pre-School,
I started when I was three,
I have lots of lovely memories,
Each one special to me.

Next, to Abbey Road Primary,
To learn and grow some more
I paid attention, in every lesson,
Nothing was a bore.

A school trip to Green’s windmill,
Another to Wollaton Hall and Park
A castle up upon a hill,
And caves that are spooky and dark.

From a beach in the town centre,
A real seaside feel in the Square
To the Waltzers and a Carousel,
Of the world renowned Goose Fair.

In Winter there’s always a market,
Full of food and gifts galore.
And an outdoor rink for skating,
And still Nottingham has so much more!

There’s the famous Sherwood Forest,
And the grand old Major Oak.
The legend of the man in green,
Robin Hood, what a generous bloke!

Two football teams, you’re spoilt for choice,
If footy is your game.
We also have an ice hockey team,
Nottingham Panthers is their name.

Trent Bridge, A test match cricket ground,
An Ice Arena and Tennis Centre too.
If Watersports are up your street,
Then Nottingham can satisfy you!

I look forward to seeing new sights,
Now that I am seventeen,
The insides of pubs and clubs
As I prepare for the nightlife scene!

Have I said how much I adore Nottingham?
If you visit then please take a look,
At some of the places that I love,
You’ll love them too me duck!
