Harry Potter Fever hits the UK
As the release of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows hits the UK cinema screens, interest, as always, soars into the history behind the filming locations of the various Harry Potter Films.
The first two Harry Potter movies were filmed in Durham Cathedral to a large extent, and since the launch of the Harry Potter franchise, millions of people have flocked to Durham to visit the historic city and Durham Cathedral which was used as the location of Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The Cloisters in Durham Cathedral were the main filming locations for Harry Potter and Harry, Ron and their friends and classmates cam be seen in the cloisters and many other rooms in the Cathedral which were used as classromms at Hogwarts.
Durham Cathedral, near Durham University, was used in the first two Harry Potter films for both interior and exterior views of Hogwarts. The cathedral’s chapter house was also used for the scenes in McGonagall's classroom.
We are very proud of the fact that Durham City was chosen as the Filming Location of Harry Potter and we often get tourists into Poplar Tree Garden Centre who have travelled to Durham just to surround themselves in Hogwarts. Im sure now that Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows has hit our screens that the influx of tourists will again be present, and of course we welcome them with open arms and a true North East welcome. Durham is also a good starting point to head on a little further up the coast to Alnwick where you can see the place where Harry Potter was given his first Broomstick lesson.
Gardens should prepare for a cold winter according to Alan Titchmarsh
Those hoping for a colourful display in their gardens next year should be planning for a harsh winter ahead, according to TV personality Alan Titchmarsh.
Writing for the Daily Express, the former Gardener's World presenter said with our climate becoming less predictable, it was possible that temperatures could drop to below -10 degrees C in some parts of the UK.
Mr Titchmarsh explained this means picking plants that can survive the cold will be vital to people looking to keep their borders in bloom.
However, he also remarked "choosing hardier plants is only half the battle" and recommended tweaking other techniques to ensure all areas are well sheltered.
Using garden products such as mulch over flowerbeds and keeping rocky features topped up should give protection from the worst of the weather, he added.
Mr Titchmarsh reassured gardeners that as long as they took "sensible precautions", most plants should be able to come through the winter "relatively unscathed".

Poplar Tree Garden Centre Continue Support of Future Business Magnates Durham
For the second year running, Poplar Tree Garden Centre (with the support of Brambledown) are offering business partnering to a school in the 2010 Future Business Magnates run by Durham County Council. This year, Paul Curry who is Business Development Manager at Brambledown and Poplar Tree Garden Centre attends regular meetings with Durham Federation (a federation between Fyndoune Community College & Durham Community Business College) in preperation for their monthly challenges throughout the year. Each school must develop a business idea and go through the process of devising a product, sourcing finance and marketing and selling their product by proposing a business model. Last year Paul Curry offered Business partnering to Easington Community College as they finished high up the league table.
Future Business Magnates is a fun competition with an important business message and opportunity. Now in its fifth year, the initiative was originally designed for year 8 students from the Durham City area. However, such has been the success of the scheme that schools throughout County Durham are now competing and this year the number of entrants has risen to sixteen.
Launched in 2005 by the late and much loved Sir Bobby Robson, Future Business Magnates continues to assist schools to deliver the enterprise, creativity and key skills set down under the education agenda at local, regional and national levels.
The competition provides an outlet for schools to encourage entrepreneurial attainment and to promote social and economic awareness amongst its students.
