oh, and a new bannister too 😀

It’s been a busy few days with decorating work, but Fay has also completed some ‘phone rounds’ of elderly and vulnerable people for the Food Train.

Arran the biggest stag at the Red Deer Range on the New Galloway road out of Newton Stewart. We use the Red Deer Range as a good turning-round point for cycle rides from The Stables.
