Gloucestershire hosts gathering

Apr 11, 2016

Postlip Hall

The 2016 gathering for Gloucestershire hosts was organised by RHC for the county Sara Keene. It was held at Postlip Hall, Winchcombe near Cheltenham on Wedesday 13th January. Postlip is a longstanding WWOOF host. Sara writes:

We met on a January morning, drank strong coffee and chatted by the open fire in Jan’s extraordinary living room (Jan McMillan is the WWOOF contact for Postlip). I thought we would follow a theme looking at mental health and WWOOFing, which has been pertinent to my experience this year. We talked through various scenarios and what we would do or had done when various issues arose. Naturally plenty of great storytelling occurred and images in my mind were rich! It was entertaining as well as being interesting and hopefully helpful to our future handling of unexpected situations. We had all had interesting, amazing and diverse WWOOFers. We shared lunch, including homemade apple juice and the most exquisite blueberry dessert.

We’ll hold a gathering again next year, in January. I hope all of you will come! Date and venue to come later in the year.

Details for regional gatherings are posted as they are arranged on the RHC page, available to hosts from the Find my RHC link on your My Tools menu once you are logged into your account. They are also posted on our members’ forum.
