Christmas magic

We had a photographic evening last night, around the Christmas trail. People came from as far as Manchester.

It started snowing and we thought that was it, but these photographers don't care about the weather and off they went, tripods in tow. We had a famous photographer from the BBC speaking in the Great Oak Hall, David Noton. The hall was packed, and David was actually not very well, drinking lemsip throughout the evening.

Well it’s the final weekend of The Enchanted Christmas. I couldn't believe it when it started snowing this morning, our reception is waiting for the phone calls to find out if the event is cancelled. Well it has stopped snowing for now and let's hope it stays that way for the next 3 days, although the arboretum looks fantastic in the snow. It should be lovely this weekend, being so close to Christmas and a dusting of snow on the ground, making it a bit more magical, the kids will love it.

We have a new exhibitor coming in tonight selling scented candles and bath oils, mmmm! We've got mince pies for the choirs and a big tin of quality street for the staff who deserve it.
