OK, not really a Pete Seeger moment, is it? But the snow and ice will not defeat us - despite two weeks of frozen conditions we are undaunted etc etc
What I really mean to tell you is that the little village of Chesters is damn well holding its Christmas Fair this Saturday 11th, come what may!
There will be tasteful artwork, stitchery, jewellery, cards, wooden goods, delicious edible treats from fancy boozy preserves to real Scots tablet, fresh bread courtesy of the Tart (if I get up early ...) as well as enough mulled wine to melt the snow and toasty warm mince pies too.
Doors open at 2.00pm - tablecloths and best china on the tea tables, happy smiling stall holders and a fine opportunity to blether with your neighbours and friends after a fortnight's curfew. Come along for a little escape from winter chores and buy tasteful goodies for Christmas!
