Dronfield Hall Barn: Spring 2021 Newsletter - Available Now!
We're officially into spring, which means our first newsletter of the year is available now!
Whilst the Barn has been closed to the public since January, you can still find out what we've been up to recently in this newsletter. Just some of the stories available in this issue include a look back at the snow we had at the beginning of the year, usual features including 'From the Archive', memories of the first five years since the Barn first opened, and a tribute to Maria, who is leaving the Dronfield Heritage Trust after seven years.

Not Long To Wait!
Outdoor hospitality re-opening from Monday 12th April (subject to Government confirmation)
The weather is warming up, and if you've missed being able to visit the Barn, there's not long left to wait!
We're looking forward to welcoming you back when outdoor hospitality is allowed to re-open from Monday 12th April. So if you're looking forward to joining us for a slice of one of our delicious cakes, or a coffee with a friend, stay tuned to our website and social media for further details of how you will be able to book a table.
We have the best volunteers and a beautiful garden!
Our garden volunteers have been out in all seasons and all weathers whilst we have been in lockdown. They have been raking leaves, planting, pruning, weeding, mowing and raking more leaves - all whilst we have been closed and people can’t enjoy the gardens as they would usually. The gardeners fund the garden by selling plants, bulbs and holding markets in normal times. This has been more difficult this past year but the garden costs have continued throughout.
If you have enjoyed seeing how the gardens have developed over the past five years, we hope that you might consider making a small donation through our website by clicking here.
