War Weekend 2012

Hard to believe that it is here again....Friday sees the start of another spectacular weekend when an estimated fifty thousand people will descend upon the Pickering area to take part in 1940's activities centred around the Steam railway and yes our Tea room will be open early Saturday morning and will close late on Sunday afternoon.This year there are two parades on foot on Saturday and the vehicle procession is on Sunday.We do hope you can join us for delicious homemade cakes,scones and soup.We're really looking forward to seeing old friends again and meeting new ones.I don't know if Hen and family will be coming this year but Lucey (Lemonade Kitty hopes to come.Many re-enactors have already arrived as they tend to stay for the week rather than just the weekend I have managed to purchase an original 1940s overall/pinny and am now searching for comfy shoes.Come and see us and meet the team Myself,Dawn,Jenny,Charlotte,Jan,Sally and Cheryl-Anne who will be sitting down quite a lot as she is having a baby on Christmas Eve but loves the weekend and really can't bear to miss it....and my sister Julia may be around if she's not too jet lagged having flown in from USA the night Victoria Sponges have a lot to measure up to...I will take lots of photos and do a long post next week...

Jenny and Charlotte last year

Sadly we won't be seeing Eric (Jenny's lovely Dad who died in September) He always loved the weekend and will be sorely missed by us all.
RIP Eric

Your table is waiting
