Events Diary: Bank Holiday

Sunday saw the first Swan Mini Market with fresh market garden produce, cheese from the Cheesemunger, tonic from 12 Below and much more. And our resident chefs were on-hand on both days to deliver more BBQ delights.

The Green Room School Allotment

The School have a local allotment to allow students to get to know how to grow vegetables and enjoy fresh air. There was a fine selection of produce available at a very reasonable price. This is going to be repeated.

The Barbecue

We had a barbecue on the Saturday and a Brunch on the Sunday. These were very popular and generated funds for the ongoing work on The Pub and The Courtyard.

Cycle Pitstop

It was the inaugration of our Cycle Pitstop, a facility for cyclists to park up safely, make repairs and have access to a range of food and drink energy products. For the launch, one of the volunteers John organised a competitive two-wheel scavanger hunt which was very popular. This does mark The Swan as an excellent destination for cyclists.
