Christmas and New Year

Published: Thursday 5th Jan 2012

The Christmas Trees have been removed from our shop fronts and Cranbrook is returning to normal again. We have all been reflecting on our days off with family and friends and all the turkeys, geese, hams and puddings we have managed to consume. Kate reported that she had been to the Rochester Christmas Market and tells us it is well worth visiting with a really great atmosphere - lots of people dressed in Victorian costume, a Police band playing carols, chestnuts roasting on an open fire, mulled wine and cider and sizzling bratwurst.

No need to go to Prague next year, Liz! Lynne had a great day at Folkestone Races. It is such a friendly course with the Paddock, Grandstand, bar and Tote all within steps of each other. Sadly no winners for Lynne but some exciting finishes to get the heart racing. Harriet went to the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith to see a musical version of The Importance of Being Earnest with Giles Brandreth as Lady Bracknell. It was utterly delightful and I recommend it if it comes to a theatre near you.
