Here at the farm we are relaxing into Christmas. The Nativity is this afternoon and that is the real start of celebrations for us. The carol singing was a huge success this year. 3 nights out and about up and down the valley and the surrounding area raising money for Hospice at Home. The cake is yet uniced and the turkey needs some adjustment to fit in the oven…but hey.. there’s hours yet to go… oh and a few presents to wrap …
The Tea Garden will be operating on a self service and honesty box system over the holidays but I will be baking so there will be cake!
We look forward to seeing you in 2018
Have a happy, healthy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
From all of us at Low Bridge End.
The Carlisle Ramblers came for their annual Christmas party. We welcomed many old faces and some new. I made cheese scones, scones with rum butter, fairy cakes, ginger bread, chocolate caramel shortbread and of course mince pies. Everybody seemed to have a good time. Indeed one lovely person commented when she was leaving, that it was the best afternoon tea she had ever had! Thank you lovely lady!
I never charge for this event, but I do ask for a donation for Eden Valley Hospice. This year I can give then £104. Thank You Carlisle Ramblers.
To brighten up our dark nights Jamie decided to light up the bridge. The reflections on the bridge are lovely!
Don’t forget to come for a Christmas Tree. Although if you want to cut your own it is best to come in daylight.
More Christmas decorations are in the kiln as I type.. I’ll see the results tomorrow.
