Rather late in the day with my report I’m afraid – I have been quite distracted from the desk and blog by all the fun activities and excitement surrounding the royal wedding, plus we have had the pleasure of friends staying (arranged long before we knew anything about the said wedding!).
The Orchard Farm sense of romance and excitement started on Wednesday when two of our guests announced their enagement! This is always a very special occasion, this time made even more or so with Prince William and Catherine Middleton’s wedding already so much in everyone’s minds.
We celebrated the Royak Wedding two days later very happily here in Parwich, in a lovely extended family atmosphere. The wedding service and all the preamble was shown on the big screen in our new hall, with everyone sitting round at tables and little girls in wedding dresses flitting by at intervals.
The barbecue lunch was held at the British Legion which most conveniently backs onto the hall. Then Lou Matthews judged the brides and Mrs Rosemary Shields gave out souvenir mugs to all the children in the parish, the wedding cake was cut and slices of cake and sherry enjoyed by all too old to be given a mug! The sun shone and everyone milled around outside and in.
John took masses of photos, some of which he hopes to put in our photo gallery but meanwhile the best bet is to link in to the Parwich website where one can read a fuller description of the day, illustrated with John’s photos.

Why not treat yourself to a few days away in the Peak District in Douglas’s or Tom’s Barns. The prices have been reduced from 17 November to 7 December 2016. The days may be shorter but it is great to get out for a few hours for a walk or drive in the lovely countryside. […]
Decided it was time to give the outside of the barns a bit of a face lift. We have replaced all the barn doors, all the exterior has been repainted, new furniture outside and new parasols t shade that lovely sun that we are still getting. A big thank you to all the skilled trade […]
