We had a very successful Christmas fair this year, the halls were decked and the holly tree was felled! Wreath making workshop was held and well attended. Happy New Year! From all at SDH. Now that Christmastide has passed, and the house and collection are sleeping soundly, the work continues. Temeratures plummet and the conservation team are on alert for the next few coming months, drying windows and listening for the sound of running water.
