Welcome to this weeks newsletter

As you can see, we're still working on the new style and layout of the newsletter (which really means that Brid is burning the midnight oil trying out different bits of software to tweak what we are doing!). Its actually not all that easy to get the balance right between professionalism and maintaining the 'personal' nature of the newsletter, so bear with us while we get it right.

Hard to believe that February is nearly over already - where did it disappear to? It is great that the evenings are getting longer and the mornings brighter, isnt it? Although it is still very dark on Saturday mornings when I am beavering away in the kitchen making all those scones that are whisked away from the market before you can say 'pear & almond'!!
