Christmas is Coming

Friday, December 11th 2015

An icy start to the day came as a bit of shock, after all the mild weather of late, but it is December after all and today we had our Christmas Wreath making workshop. Yesterday we had gathered the materials needed, using natural resources from the reserve, Willow, Holly, Ivy and Pine cones.  


Embellishments came in the form of ribbons and glitter spray. After a brief demonstration everyone got stuck in, altogether we had 11 people making wreaths, some who had made one previously and others for whom it was their first go discovering talents they didn’t know they had!  I think it safe to say that an enjoyable morning was had by all.


Next week is our Foxglove Christmas Dinner, on Wednesday 16th, to be held up at Wathgill. If you haven’t booked yet and would like to come please get in touch with us asap, as we will be finalising numbers for the catering early next week.
