Hey everyone!!!

Half way through summer. Can you believe it!!!
For me this has been one of my greatest summers and I would like to thank everyone who volunteers here and all the members of staff who work here too!

I have done quite a lot recently. For example: I have been rag rugging in the cottages, I have been in the warm seating area and I have also been helping Wendy Simms with her craft activity. (WHAT A BUSY SUMMER!!!)

Cottage Cooking week is also on next week. I said that I would do some cooking in Stang End. Hope it doesn't end in disaster!!!

Well I hope everyone has had a fantastic summer and I will see you all a bit later.
