Hello everyone,

I am delighted that my first new-look newsletter is to announce a Workshop Collaboration with SIBELLA COURT & THE SOCIETY INC, to be held at GLENMORE on SUNDAY 27 NOVEMBER.  


This is how The Society Inc describe their vision for the day:

‘Embrace our gorgeous summer weather by decorating your Christmas table with what nature & the garden have to offer.  Follow Sibella on a spontaneous jaunt through Mickey’s garden, choosing & picking tendrils, leafy greens, flowers, branches & anything else that takes your fancy’.  (Gosh – I hope I have a garden left!!).  Sibella will then translate them into decorating & table-setting ideas that can be used throughout summer & for your Christmas table’…….


The programme for the day will be as follows:

10.30am  Arrival & Morning Tea in The Dairy (Mickey’s homemade cakes!)

10.45am  Short introduction by Sibella & Mickey outlining the day’s programme

11.00am  Chat with Mickey about the garden at Glenmore (& I’ll be on tap for the rest of the day of course….)
