10th April 2014

Here’s wishing you a sunny Easter, full of blossom and bulbs, chocolate, marzipan and family fun. To celebrate the arrival of my new book Flying the Coop, we are re-vamping the website, starting to tweet again – I never quite got the point the first time round, going on Facebook and visiting various venues, like The Leaping Hare in Suffolk, The Hen Party at Benenden and others to be announced. 

All rather daunting. I much prefer to have open house here in Whitstable, so in tandem with an article about the new house in the July Issue of Country Living Magazine, we’ll be welcoming visitors here on Sunday July 27th. Further information here nearer the time. Hope to see you here. 

In the meantime, the book should be available here after Easter, I’m off to the Gardening Against the Odds awards at Syon Park, a lovely event that celebrates those who manage despite their problems. This year’s winner is a garden centre in Cheltenham who has turned their greenhouses into workshops for disabled gardeners. All 57 are arriving by coach. Last year, it snowed – here’s hoping for a more clement day. 

Please bear with us if there are any problems during the re-vamp of the website. I’m always available: francine@kitchen-garden-hens.co.uk, and it’s nice to hear from you.
