Week Commencing 5 September 2016

7 September 2016

Attended the Mayoress at Home event, in Seaham, Co Durham. We met the local dignitaries along with the Mayors and Mayoress from other areas.

All proceeds going to the Mayoresses charity, as usual I didn’t win anything but winning isn’t everything because of the good causes but it does help at least once! Thank you for a lovely afternoon.


9 September 2016

Attended Wynyard Hall, the opening of the new garden and home grown produce Centre. What a dramatic change from when I last saw this area two weeks ago, I think they must have taken part in the 60 minute make over to get it completed. There is a fantastic array of home grown vegetables which they actually use in the kitchens (can’t get much fresher than that), flowers, shrubs and a tea room. This makes for an idyllic setting and with the rest of the expansion plans getting underway there will soon be fantastic additions to the Rose and new gardens. Thanks to all the staff and management for their hospitality.
