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!
