This was the week that storm Imogen caused havoc all over North Cornwall. Our river raged through the farm churning up mud from the sides and only just stopped short of flooding over the bridge. This was followed by tremendous winds which ripped apart two of our animal shelters and left 5000 houses, including Coombe Mill, without power. Thank goodness none of the animals were hurt and our cosy wood burner came into its own as a form of heating and light after dark. I’m so pleased it all happened while we were still closed. Please no more storms, we are now full for half term and not planning on taking our guests back into the dark ages with another power cut!
I finished the week at the small Business Sunday (#sbs) conference in Birmingham where there was no mistaking who I was!
