The last two weeks have been very different for us. The first week, we had a coach party from a Garden Club in Finland. Unfortunately the weather was far from ideal for visiting gardens, but it didn`t dampen their spirits. They had a very packed itinary, everything from looking at gardens, castles, wine tasting, craft centres and even venturing over the border into Wales, each night strolling to the local pub for a meal. They thoroughly enjoyed their visit, which for all of them was their first time in England.
The second week we were hosting a French School Exchange. 22 excited children and 4 teachers arrived in the pouring rain. Luckily the weather improved and they had a wonderful time, spending one day building and sailing rafts, shool sports, trip to Worcester,cumulating in hosting some of the Children from Clifton Primary to a BBQ by the fishing pool. They went home very tired but happy.
