All this talk and thought of food…
We have just made a minuscule Gift Aid Donation of £10.11 to Mary’s Meals.
To our dismay, but also delight, we discover that £10.11 will feed one child a nourishing meal at school for over a year and a half…
We had pledged to donate any commission we received as a result of our guests taking out holiday cancellation insurance with the Pavey Group. (We strongly recommend our guests take out insurance, so not surprisingly we felt very awkward about benefiting in any way.)
Mary’s Meals addresses the immediate needs of hungry children by giving them a daily meal which they have to be attending school to receive. So they get the nourishment plus encouragement to receive an education that can provide an escape from poverty for themselves and their communities.
Douglas’s Barn is available to book for short breaks 3 or 4 nights between 2 and 20 May 2016. Bookings usually start on a Monday or a Friday but if you want a break that starts on a different day get in touch. We are very flexible with bookings.
There are some new attractions added to the list of treats available with the Premier Cottages special privileges card. Amongst them are Renishaw Hall, Thornbridge Hall Gardens (new discounts), Hassop Station Cafe, Village Green Cafe Eyam, Carsington Water Sports and Leisure, Hartington Cheese Shop.
There are still a few free dates at the end of March/April in both Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns. Short breaks, 3 or 4 nights, which are not normally available are on offer. Please look at availability and give me a call or book on line.
