NEWS PAGE & BLOG


Hello one and all and welcome to my news page. Here you can see me as my two alter egos the ever efficient secretary Prudie Jones, Evette the Spivette and plain old little me as you catch up with all that is current in my world. Regrettably unlike Prudie my spelling is quite frightful at the best of times due to my dyslexia so I shall apologise now for anything which might be shamefully mis-spelt. In the mean time I hope you find this page fun, entertaining and informative and become a regular visitor to my site.

Kind Regards

A Voice in a Million


Fiona Harrison On Tour at Willington Hall & Onto Tarporley – Part Two!

Me at Willington Hall!

Me at Willington Hall!

After a great weekend in Llandrindod Wells Paul and I made our way onto Cheshire where I had booked to stay a couple of nights at Willington Hall. When it comes to booking hotels on line sometimes the Hotels don’t always come up to the mark. However when it came to Willington Hall everything came together perfectly.

Built in 1829 by the Tomkinson family Willington Hall remained the seat to the Tomkinson family for over 170 years until it was bought by the Begbie family who turned it into a hotel. The wonderful thing

about Willington Hall is the peice and quiet not to mention the goodly sized bedrooms. It’s a popular venue for weddings and has delightful views of the Cheshire country side. It had been Paul and my intention to stay at Willington and visit Cheshire only we were still very tired after our shows in Llandrindod Wells. Finding Willington was a God send and we enjoyed having a couple of days rest before heading onto Scotland.

We had two days to kill and while we were there we visited the town of Tarporley which is only 3 miles away from Willington. Tarporly is famous for the Hunt Club which was founded in 1762 and still meets at the Swan today. Upstairs is a wonderful room dedicated to the Hunt Club which has a fabulous collection of Hunting art on the walls. I felt very privilege to have been invited to visit and I enjoyed Willington Hall and Tarporley very much. So much so that as I decided to book in for another night on Monday evening as I would be driving back from Gretna Green on my own and it made sence to break my journey.
