Sarah at Northchurch is in a play at the Katherine Warrington School in Harpenden this weekend.

‘Still Life’ by Noel Coward

Dress rehearsals have been underway – see the photos.  Tickets can be found on the company’s website. You can either buy online or reserve tickets and pay on the door on the night of the show – Friday 25th evening and a Saturday 26th matinee at the school this week.



A Hemel Food Garden outside contract team were in a sunny Watford last week.

The bakery team were producing flapjacks and biscuits this week. Cosey and productive whilst the weather was miserable outside.

A team from HFG were at the Abbots Langley allotments getting stuck in clearing brambles.

Some sad news though. In memory of Magnus and Oakley who have sadly passed over the rainbow bridge and will be hugely missed by everyone at HFG. Two old guys who’ve left a big gap in the HFG family. They are now resting in the tranquility space.

This week’s market stall sellers missed the rain, were well wrapped up and had more Christmas gifts to sell. Spot the lovely, bottled apple juice Christmas hats.

Willow wreath base making underway.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Northchurch farm shop. The teams have been busy making Sunnyside Christmas gifts to sell. This weeks Tuesday crafts have had the festive vibe.
