Looking back – and forwards

Not much to say on the renovations this week – but then that’s great news!

We have kept the café open every day except Christmas Day, although we had a slight glitch today when the unexpected surge of interest over lunch time meant one group of walkers had to wait longer for their lunch than we would have wished and which we wholeheartedly regret.  We will be grateful when Jane returns from her well earned holiday!

Domestically, we enjoyed 4 days with the full family party of seven.  Yesterday, Tim and Mike visited Blaenau Ffestiniog for a trip on the railway…

In the café, Welsh conversation may be available on Thursday afternoon (if anyone else arrives),  and then our next event is the band Jabberwocky on 7th January.


Feel free to book your tickets now – or reserve places for our next Quiz Night on Saturday 18th February.
