Getting Geared-up for Christmas

The Chimneys have been cleaned.  The floors are being polished.  The Barrels are being filled with turf.  Santa has confirmed he will be with us on Christmas Day after his busy night - and he's looking forward to it.  The Carol Singers will be in as with the Wren Boys (and girls).  Food shopping list has nearly been finalised for the kitchens.  And bedrooms are being prepared for all our guests.

So all we need do is wait for all of you to arrive with your festive cheer (we're really looking forward to it)

Even the Ducks are getting into the spirit of things.....see the video clip below
