A Visit, Ponies and Work

Wednesday, November 8th 2017

Councillor Ian Threlfall, Deputy Leader of Richmondshire District Council, visited Foxglove this morning.  He came to see how the money the council had gifted us had been used.  First stop was a photo shoot with Lark and Taurus.

The two ponies did co-operate for some photos.

Enough!

But eventually enough was enough!

We then headed to the Scrapes to look at our interpretation panels and then back to the Field Centre to look at our inspirational text.  While having a cup of tea Councillor Threlfall talked to volunteers about Foxglove.  He thoroughly enjoyed his visit.

After all this the volunteers had to get back to work, preparing for the Coffee Morning in Richmond Town Hall tomorrow morning, 9 till 12.  Ruth was sorting out which cards to take.
