Winter 2016

I cannot believe that I am about to wish you all a Happy Christmas, as 2016 has flown by for us. Summer finally arrived and we made the best of all those sunny days.


The dry, sunny start to Autumn gave us a wonderful display of colour which I am sure will have been captured on many cameras.

The trees are bare now and Christmas draws close, so I wish you all a very happy Christmas and a healthy, peaceful New Year
