We are becoming rather excitingly nomadic for the next fortnight or so but fortunately the barns are remaining exactly as they always are and everything at Orchard Farm will carry on as normal under the capable hands of 0ur faithful team of supporters – Janet, Debbie and Carol, joined now from time to time by Mary who as well as cleaning like a dream is a whizz at tough jobs in the garden than no one else dares tackle.
Everything here remains reassuringly the same with two exceptions. Unless I can master how to send posts from the Norfolk Broads – and then – even trickier – Poland, the Tomsbarnblog will remain perhaps blissfully silent for a fortnight or so with maybe a brief news update at the weekend. Secondly, we will be able to take bookings as usual but not process card payments until we return – I don’t expect that will worry too many people either.
We will still – signals in Norfolk and Poland permitting – be in email and mobile phone contact. So, if you are waiting impatiently to pay, or to read the latest exciting post in the blog, ‘Please ‘bear with us’ as those dreadful recorded telephonic messages repeat interminably.
Please bear with us.
