Happy new year to all – let us hope it is peaceful, prosperous and more importantly healthy.  We enjoyed a wonderful  holiday period with all the family  staying over Christmas and friends here for the new year celebration.

If frost and cold weather are supposed to kill  lingering germs there should be none about now.  We are experiencing the longest lasting snow falls since we came here to Priestcliffe.  You can see from the photos how picturesque the views are all around us and although this means the lane is difficult you can get out if you really want to;  we are staying at home for a few days enjoying the sunshine between the showers.

Holiday brochures keep arriving in the post and we are all tempted to make plans for the coming months.  Perhaps a trip to the Peak District is on your list, if so Highfield is the place to come.
