Lion Share is launched!

Last night we had a wonderful night at The Kitchen Table to launch ‘Lion Share’, our community share offer.

We’ll post more here then, but for now, here is our Lion Share video to whet your appetite.

As you know, we have long outgrown our current Station Road home which is groaning at the seams, and have been looking for a new home. We have long had the dream of co-inhabiting with our friends The Almond Thief, and have been looking for some time […]
