We would like to thank everyone who came to our wedding party, as well as all those who didn’t but sent us lovely cards. We had such a great time!

We then spent a couple of days in Cornwall in our folding caravan for our honeymoon and now we’re back, slowly recovering and focusing once again on the building work. We will soon be sending out thank you cards, and we’ll put some photos up of the wedding but in the meantime…

There are a few things we need to tell you about:

1. Dishes left behind.

2. Cob building, apple pressing and pizza eating parties!

3. Children’s Aikido Club in Buckfastleigh.

Dishes left behind

We have masses of dishes here at Velwell Orchard. Please come and collect. We have no space for them and they’ll be taken to the charity shop very soon if unclaimed. Here’s a picture:


Cob building, apple pressing and pizza eating parties!

We are really under pressure now to get our roof on so we are in ugent need of help! We also have a lot of wine and cider left over from the wedding, and our neighbours are offering us quite a lot of apples to press. So we thought why not combine it all together:

Saturday, 16th, 23rd and 30th of September from 2pm – come and get involved building  with cob, pressing apples, eating pizza and making merry! Please bring any of the following: apples, empty bottles, wellies, pizza toppings. There are a few camping spots available if you want to stay the night.
