The say a picture is worth a thousand words, so how much is a video worth. Today while  packing 72 waterboxes boxes we were caught on camera. within 90 minutes we had packed over three pallet loads ready for shipment. A good morning’s work

Cary Playfest 2017

Cary Playfest took place on Saturday, 16 September 2017.

Brue Valley and friends were out in force to offer our own brand of support.  Bacon and Burgers were cooked, faces were painted (and not just our own!), jars were decorated and tea-lights added and, new for 2017, cup cakes were decorated.

The evidence is attached!

Birds with feathers

( Or who’s pretty boy/girl then )

As a departure from our normal visits, last night took us to a venue where birds of prey are rescued and re-homed wherever possible. surrounded by Barn Owls, Harris falcons, Eagles, Eagle Owls and  Buzzards.Many were brave enough to get close and personal with these creatures, others stayed a safe distance.

Tapas in the Garden

Thirteen intrepid adventurers enjoyed a superb evening at the Yeo Valley Organic Gardens in Chew Valley.  On arrival we wandered around the magnificent gardens, one particularly keen member was determined to master the 1km haybale maze – but I think he cheated, he couldn’t possibly move that fast, not with a dodgy knee!

Afterwards we joined our reserved table for the tapas meal.  We had a taster menu specially selected………….   most of us had a taste of everything, but some dishes had great difficulty in getting round the table.  The good bit was that desserts and ice cream were included, and that rounded off a most pleasant evening.

If you enjoy tapas, and have visitors who also like them, it would make a great evening out, you will need to check their website:  https://www.yeovalley.co.uk/the-valley/events-in-the-valley, to see what’s on.
