Bookings Update

Eventbrite is a new platform for us and it has mostly worked well. Our visits and lamb feeds have been extremely popular with over 5,000 visitors to our site this month.  Due to the popularity of these events and some hiccups with the waiting list, we now need to play catch-up.

With the bulk of our income raised between March and July, we are facing (like many of you) an unprecedented situation which could threaten our very existence after nearly 40 years. We’ve cut back on our […]
