This week we are carrying on with the refurbishament programme. Room 5 the four poster overlooking the garden has been gutted. the new bathroom suite and furnishings have arrived, it will be out for a few weeks as there is a lot to do.
New curtains and bedding have also arrived for 14, 15, 26 and 29 as well as some extra runners and bits and bobs for other rooms. Rooms 15 and 26 have been redecorated as well. It seems never ending the refurbishment but i do feel we are making progress.
Last weekend was especially busy with the 'Rare Breeds' show a BBQ and Sysonby Harvest Supper. It seemed a good idea at the time to get it all done in one weekend ! The BBQ was the one delayed from June due to the awful weather, on this occassion we were blessed, weather and atmosphere great - the 'do' went on until midnight when they had to come in to avoid keeping the residents and neighbours up !
Sysonby Church harvest supper also occurred this weekend. We transported the food down after the service and produce auction. With ticket sales, produce auction and collection a grand total nearly £100 was raised for chuch funds. Thanks to all those who donated produce.
