There's always a bit of sadness when another winter closing approaches. Despite the festive season and the need for us all to rest up after another hectic year, we will miss all of our friends and visitors.
Its been another enjoyable year. That long, warm summer brought people out to Appledore and many ended up joining us for tea and cake.
There have been several changes in Appledore. Alan has finally moved on from Forge Antiques and we will all miss his good humour and the enthusiasm he brought to the enterprise.
Lots of new faces have moved into the village as people move on. Some older, formally un-cared for buildings are being seriously upgraded making the village even more attractive for residents and visitors alike.
We all look forward to seeing you all in January 2015 and wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a safe, healthy and enjoyable New Year.
