Remember, remember…on the 5th November we had a lovely fireworks display and bonfire to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night. Donald and the fire brigade deftly handled the explosives and through the kindness of the community (overjoyed at the chance to get rid of those old palates that have been sitting beside the shed since potentially prehistoric times) a spectacular bonfire was constructed. Mulled cider was served with mulled apple juice for the children and sweeties were passed around the kids (and the not-so-kids).

Due to unforeseen costs in the running of the bonfire night, Caitlin is gratefully receiving donations which can be left in the shop or the service point.
