Compared to what some people are suffering now and compared to previous Winters - so far seem to be surviving realtively unscathed. had excellent trading before Christmas - in between the gale force winds! - and have never had such a strong growth in interest in deliveries as have this January. maybe people are recognising Bluebell as one of the few small really independent and really local delivery schemes?
After a lot of upheaval last year I did get away for Christmas and whilst a bot worried about what I would find when I came back - it seemed the garden survivied ok - with only a bit of damage to polytunnels and one fallen tree in the orchard - all have soon been fixed by Dad and volunteer Andrew and swapped the wood from the tree for some back treatment from the chiropracter!
