  • Winter is one of those seasons that one minute you are loving, with its colour spectrum of raging red berries and pale blue light in the sky, and the next you are cursing, as you long for warm summer breezes and for a day you don’t have to spend half an hour getting all your winter gear on just to go to the post office. So as the year comes to a close we hope to see you at some of our events, either bringing your winter joy to share or your winter blues to be soothed.
