Well… that’s the end of the third week of our gallery being closed. What should have been a bustling Bank Holiday at the Tithebarn Workshops is just another lockdown day at home.
Like most people during this time we have tried to keep our minds as active as we can and we wanted to thank Chris Bryett and everyone at Wadworths Brewery for the excellent, online pub quiz last night. Our son Jake, who is head chef at the George in Norton St Philip put us on to it. The family gathered on Skype and we had a fantastic evening. The quiz was run in support the Trussell Trust Organisation, so hopefully lots of money was raised as well as bringing together and cheering up some isolated people.
Hopefully, in the coming week, we will get a little more news on when things might start getting back to normal… but until then… stay safe and stay happy.
Well… we are now entering the third week of closure and it certainly doesn’t feel any less strange. In the 11 and a half years of being at the Tithebarn Workshops we have only ever been closed for one week at a time!
Serena and I are certainly missing our lovely gallery, our fellow workshop owners and our wonderful customers. We do, however, appreciate how lucky we are compared to many others who are in far more difficult circumstances and want to take this opportunity to say another huge THANK YOU to all the NHS staff and indeed all key workers during this crisis. Your sacrifice and selfless dedication are a credit to you all.
Hopefully it won’t be too long before everyones lives will return to some sort of normality and we will be able to reopen again. Until then… please stay safe and enjoy this lovely sunshine (from your home!)
