Christine Ryder -Farmhouse Breakfast , North Yorkshire 2011

Today it was all hands on deck. Christine Ryder from Scaife Hall Farm rallied the troops- the Harrogate and Nidderdale farm holiday group . Even Christine's friendly Barclay bank manager spent the day in the kitchen. I went along to capture the day. I ended up tucking into a very nice meal around 2.30pm which is a really civilized time to eat. Chocolate would do me for breakfast any other day.Lindsey Hitchen from St George's Court opened her doors.We thank everyone who gave so generously. £300 was raised by the raffle to be shared between the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and ARC Addington.. There are two more days -so if you are in the area why not take a trip to Lindsey's farmhouse near Fountains Abbey . There is no doubt there is plenty to eat and drink. The Air Ambulances are going to be re-station. One at Leeds/Bradford Airport. The other is at Bagby which is only 7 miles from here.Lets hope we never have to call on it but reassuring to know it is so close. Two people we know very well have had to use the service.Jenny fell off her horse. More seriously Malcolm who has a hand made furniture business sew his whole hand completely off -within 12 minutes he was airlifted to the James Cook hospital. It is now back on and works quite well so I am told.
