Getting ready for the cold…

October 23, 2014

As the month passes by and we’re preparing for our winter weekend openings, we’re also getting ready to keep everything warm and protected.

Our heatings now on so the room’s humidity and collection is kept at a nice temperature as well as keeping our volunteers and visitors warm! The conservation team are busy deep cleaning room by room and continuing to sort through the archive stores.

In the garden we have been busy removing our summer bedding, ready to plant the spring bedding. All of our apples have now been pressed and made into juice so we can start to make mulled apple juice for December!

In the tea room we are now stocked up on kindling and coal to make a roaring fire to keep everyone warm, as well as offering lovely hot soup with a bread roll for that extra cosy feeling on your visit.

If you find yourself in the kitchen in the next few weeks you’ll see that we have started our festivities already! There are lots of lovely gift ideas and decorations to buy, as well as our Sunnycroft souvenirs.
