As I write this note the trees are turning and the swallows on their way South with partridge in every hedgerow and pheasants awandering!

April 21 – Happy 90th Birthday to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Blog > Date posted: April 21, 2016

It is truly remarkable that most of us cannot remember another monarch whilst we have lived and most of all are in awe at Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s immense energy and stamina which outstrips most of us at the best of times.  Duty, honour and trust are words which spring to mind and I hope that in […]
