Kids day out at Greenlands Farm Village (for adults too...)

Greenlands Farm Village is a fantastic place to take the kids. Even if you don't get a kick from watching them interact with animals and having fun in the play areas, it a great place for us adults too!  The cafe serves very good food (we loved the ham, egg and hand-cut chips!), the wine shop allowed us to pick up a bottle of our favourite carmenere, and the farm shop had a surprisingly wide range of foods and other products. To top it off, today they had a Chistmas fair showcasing the work of local artisans. Here are a few quick pics showing a few of the local residents and some of the activities available. I only wish I'd taken pictures of the great food we were served in the cafe. Being a foodie family (well, the other three are), we were pleasantly surprised at how good the fayre was. Clean, tasty and well-presented - we will definitely be back!

Greenlands Farm Village, near Carnforth

Had the pleasure to meet Craig and Julie Walker at The Bay FM advertising event this week. They are part of a team who run Greenlands Farm Village, near Carnforth. They have a Christmas fair happening soon, an event we are now planning to attend. Watch this space for pictures!

Edit: Back from a lovely afternoon at Greenlands Farm Village and what a positive report we have. Details on the next post, but here's a festive image taken from inside the barn that was selling unique gifts from local artisans. It's a decorated branch from ceramist Wyn Abott's stand. So beautiful - I couldn't resist!

Lancaster student needing house next year?

I know someone who can help. Gulam Hassan has eight houses in Lancaster for student rental. Building and maintaining his website - Lancaster Living - I declare an interest in recommending him, but I can also recommend Gulam on a personal level and know he looks after his properties as well as treating his tenants with respect. Here is one of his recently refurbished kitchens - not bad for student digs!

Covering sports and dance photography in Lancashire

EWM Photography covers sports and dance events in Lancashire. A Nikon D3s camera and professional lenses freeze sports action in very low light without flash. Sometimes it's also nice to capture a cute pose during the warm-ups! Here's one from a recent event.

Tom Webster, Fine Furniture Maker, Lancaster.

Tom Webster is a well-known cabinet-maker in Lancaster, crafting fine quality bespoke furniture for clients. You can find out more about Tom and the work he does on his website. Below a couple of snaps I took at his workshop. The look of concentration hides a friendly and warm character. You usually find him smiling - honest!
