40 Days and 40 Nights?

Just when you think that the sun is here to stay, we stage an Event... and down comes the rain!

I'm starting to take it personally - is someone up there trying to tell me something? Should we give up trying to entertain our faithful followers?

No of course not! Last night, despite the horrendous forecast, 60 guests enjoyed the cosy surroundings of Markenfield on an autumn night in aid of Ripon Cathedral. We obviously had someone on our side last night, as the rain held off until everyone was safely inside and enjoying the delicious homemade canapes and wine.

The Cathedral Choir put on a wonderful performance in the Great Hall, followed by The Dean talking about the Cathedral Patrons and then a talk by Ian Curteis FSA on the history of the Hall and the ongoing restoration work.

So all in all, not only were we very lucky, we were very fortunate to spend the evening in such good company.
