All the fun of the Fayre
A glorious day yesterday, perfect for lounging in the sun, so that's what I did. I went along to the 'May Fayre' at Well Hall Pleasaunce, where there were family activities, various stalls, owls [?!], and a band playing hits of the 60s. Sitting on the lawn reading the paper and sipping a cool apple juice, life felt pretty good.
There was also a display in the Tudor Barn of the new plans for the building, which has now been leased to a 'Community Interest and Event Management Company' called Staar. Their website for the project is still under construction, but you can see it here. The plans look very good - there will be a cafe and visitor centre/community space on the ground floor, which will become a restaurant in the evenings. There will also be a function room on the first floor, and the site will market itself for weddings and corporate functions.
The plans have received a warm welcome from the Friends of Well Hall Pleasaunce, who are pleased that the barn will be operational again as something other than a pub. Local residents I've spoken to seem to agree, and I certainly look forward to seeing this fantastic building get a new lease of life.
