I AM writing my column this week sitting in the sunshine and fresh air at Carrington Riding Centre while my son has his weekly riding lesson.

It’s a lovely relaxing way to spend a morning and a nice change from where I normally write.

Val and I spent a lovely afternoon wandering around all the stalls at the bustling Altrincham Market. It really has got something for everyone.

It’s a really good market and has a great café area, too. It was nice to listen to the live music as we browsed all the various stalls.

It made me excited for Urmston’s new Market 41 which will be opening next year.

I will be performing at Altrincham Market in the near future and will keep you posted on the time and date of that and hope you will come along and support.

In Altrincham town we wandered around the high street shops before visiting Warrens Bakery, the oldest Cornish pasty maker in the world (selling pasties since 1860). I treated myself to one and I have to say it was absolutely gorgeous.

We also visited the famous ‘Bier Cell’, the smallest bar in Altrincham.

The owner gave us a tour of the bar which has only one table with two chairs and a bar. It really is that small

You should go and have a look if you’re in the area, it’s a really fun and quirky mini-bar and Jason who showed us around is a really friendly chap.

They describe themselves as a specialist beer emporium and although it was too early in the day to sample any beers, I’m sure we will be back!

Altrincham really is a lovely town to visit and there’s lots to do there - we really enjoyed our visit.

It was also lovely to meet some Wayne’s World readers who stopped us to say hello and have a chat.

Back in Urmston there was something strange in the neighbourhood.

We were greeted by the sight of a giant Marshmallow Man as the Ghost Busters arrived in Eden Square, complete with an American Cadillac Miller-Meteor. The Ecto-1 car from the famous Ghostbusters film franchise.

I had a quick chat with the owners - two friends who are 80s movie fans - and have started up a business hiring out the car for proms, weddings and special events.

The kids in Urmston definitely loved seeing them. Even the big kids like me!

We finished our day off at our favourite curry house, Haldi Lounge & Spice Grill on Higher Road, which has quickly become our new eating out home.

If you’ve never been there then I highly recommend you give them a try!

We really do have some fantastic places here in Trafford!
