Antiques Roadshow – 6th March Holy Rood Church Hall 10am – 1pm
We all enjoyed the presentation by David Palmer at an earlier Monthly Meeting, and he is willing to come back to see us, accompanied by some colleagues. This team will give you a valuation on your prized possessions, and talk to you personally about what you have brought along. This is a real exclusive for us, so please show your support! Each item you bring, up to a maximum of three per person, will be valued for a fee of only £3.00. Amazing value, so get digging in Auntie’s drawers and see what you can bring to light!
Cote Hill Farm cheese makers, Osgodby: Tuesday 5th September @ 10.30
The Davenport family has been farming at Cote Hill for over 40 years, and their own herd provides the milk for their well known four varieties of cheese. These are Gold Medal winning cheeses, so are well worth tasting! The price of £5.00 pp gives you a two hour tour of the dairy and cheese making room, followed by a tasting session. Yum, yum!
