Welcome to the winter/spring newsletter for 2021, hope you are all keeping well as we start the New Year. Being back in lockdown is tough and is proving to be a challenge to lots of us, but now there is light at the end of the tunnel with the roll out of the vaccine and the days getting lighter as we head towards spring. Winter is currently in full flow with storms and snow to contend with, but despite that here’s hoping you manage to get out and explore your local countryside over the next few months to make the most of the changing seasons.
