Initially we will be buying in the pellets but hope to be able to make our own in the near future.
This will also mean that in the event of a power cut (but with a small generator) we will still have an area that can be used comfortably

One thing we lack at Hargate is a communal eating area for groups who are too small to justify booking the whole place, but too big to all be able to eat in one of the apartments. We are therefore going to gut and refurbish the games room and turn it into a separately bookable dining and kitchen area.
It will also be able to double up as a training room for corporate groups. We will be adding further out door activities to keep youngsters entertained as well as maintaining a small supply of games in the upstairs communal area.

The viaduct is 65ft high and is set in the spectacular Millers Dale valley. The minimumm donation for the abseil is £10 with all the funds raised going to the Wormhill Well Dressing fund.
This event could not take place without the kind volunteer support of the local outdoor activity providers, Derbyshire Cave Rescue Organisation and the Peak District National Park Authority, so a big thsnk you to them.

HaHa and other news
We now have a cover over the BBQ area so you can have that planned BBQ whatever the weather. It also doubles as a smoke shelter.

At some point the wall collapsed and the stone and other debris were thrown into the ditch of the HaHa. thinking it would be a relatively quick job, I decided to start digging it out. In the process I have found all sorts of things - old ovens, zimmer frames (it was a care home for a while!), a car door, etc. After 2 weeks about half of it is now dug out but continual rain slowed progress to a standstill, so I have decided to let it all dry out before finishing it off.
I am only digging out 3 to 4 feet depth though it may go as much as 8 feet. Once done we will start keeping sheep. If nothing else it will save me a few hours a week cutting grass!

Well, we have just had our first proper snow fall this year. Having had several days below zero the snow has settled easily on the ground and trees - look fantastic. Its a shame that the group we had in this weekend missed it. All the kids would have loved tobogganing down the grounds, but maybe they will get it next year!
