A little bit of sunshine really does make the world a better place, I am not sure if it is because spring has finally arrived and the landscape has turned green, or maybe, as we are busier there is less time to think about events in the wider world - ie outside Eskdale! Anyway me and the rest of the gang up here are happily getting on with preperations for events such as the Boot Beer Festival, which kicks off on the 5th of June at Brook House with our curry night and also excellent local band THE ROOSTERS will be playing from about 9pm.
This year we will have over 30 real ales over the weekend on 11 handpulls with at least another 45 at the other 2 pubs. Hollins campsite is fully booked but Fisherground just a mile or so down the road and Parkgate Farm (3 miles) still have availability. see http://www.eskdale.info/ for more accommodation
So cheers to a happy sunny summer
Thanks to Homer for reminding me to post a blog this month.
