Susan Briggs has lots of strings to her bow.A PR lady,a journalist and world sorter. So isn't Yorkshire lucky she just happens to live here and has a passion for the area.She held a meeting at Fountains Abbey earlier this week when I along with other Farmstay "Girls".It was to discuss how to bringing the Yorkshire Dales into the forefront of every ones mind. Although I am in the Moors as far as regions go and I cant get any grant money it was still interesting to go to listen. What questions are thrown at Susan she never stalls. She has her audience spell bound as we cram every word she utters into our knowledge boxes. Afterwards our little gang went into the tea room for refreshments.

Caroline Barker our regional Chairman,Christine Ryder who wore the Farmstay Chairman hat for many years who does bed and breakfast at Scaife Hall and Mary Pearson another b and b lady who kindly shared her cheese scone with me.
