Hello, and welcome to my November Newsletter.   Bryan and I recently went to Farnham to spend a few days with my sister, Gill. We had a nice time catching up, going shopping, and tidying her garden, as the weather was lovely. We also managed to fit in a visit to RHS...

Pompeii and Herculaneum

My July 2023 Newsletter

My July 2023 Newsletter

Hello and welcome to my July Newsletter.   Well, it was the longest day last week and we've been joking that the nights must now be pulling in. A scary thought, particularly as the weather is more like October than July at the moment. My sister, Gill, came to stay...

A Visit to Tavistock and Cotehele House

A Visit to Tavistock and Cotehele House

I always enjoy a visit to the ancient town of Tavistock, which is situated on the River Tavy in West Devon. It can trace its history back to at least 961 when Tavistock Abbey was founded, and whose ruins can still be seen in the centre of the town. Tavistock lies...
