It has been an extremely busy summer and autumn here at Gressenhall, not many weeks have gone by without an event. I have done everything from meeting the Gruffalo to selling 1940s newspapers. These first few months have really opened my eyes to how much planning and work running an event takes. But how rewarding it can be, watching people enjoy the day!
I have also started the adult leisure learning programme, which has involved organising a wide variety of courses including Art Attack! for Adults Christmas workshops, basketry and family history. It has also meant that I have visited quite a few Christmas fairs and attend an enamelling workshop at the V&A- All in the name of “research”. As we have now closed for the winter, we are starting to plan next year’s events which hopefully we can make as good as this year! Fingers crossed.
