March updates from RHC & news on the Café

The year is flying by and this week (21st March as I write) we commemorate a year since our first lockdown.  Little did any of us know what lay ahead.  It has affected everyone in some way, some with deep pain and sadness, others with great financial loss, many experiencing very real loneliness and most with a greater realisation of how we previously took so much for granted.

At the Old School we have not been able to do all we had planned and this includes starting a café from January but we have pressed on where we could and are delighted to tell our readers that after Easter our café tenants, Ian & Christine Richardson, will start a take-away service pending being able to open the café.  We are all looking forward to freshly ground coffee and homemade cakes as well as other goodies that Christine is planning – do visit her website.

Next month we hope to be able to give an update on HomeFirst Plus’s Pod initiative that is awaiting release from lockdown.  Any enquiries in respect of HFP or the Pods to, please.

We are still welcoming plants – shrubs, herbs, perennials, and all hardy, and also gardening tools, watering cans, etc.


Cam’s Kitchen… watch this space!

If you have walked past the Old School recently, you will have seen the signs for the Cafe.  We are counting down the days to when we can welcome you in.  Of course, initially, it will be takeaway only, due to the COVID lock-down rules, but when you arrive, I think you’ll see your Administrator first in the queue to buy a slice of Christine’s baking…
