Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning

The Cloud Hotel took part in The Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday September 24th in aid of
Macmillan Cancer Support. It was lovely to see so many friends and business colleagues and we raised £620-00. Thank you to everyone who came and supported the day.

The leaves on the trees are slowly changing colour and the evenings are beginning to draw in. The clocks go back at the end of October and the golden hue of the Autumn colours will be at their best in late October and early November. It's a lovely time of year to visit the New Forest National Park and unwind and relax before the Christmas rush. Lymington Market is held on a Saturday and is a great place to do your Christmas shopping and get some bargains. There are also some lovely shops in Lymington where you can browse and avoid the rush and crowds you experience in the big cities. There is a direct train service to Lymington Town from Brockenhurst so you don't even need to take the car and worry about the parking. Alternatively Brockenhurst and New Milton are also good shopping centres with lovely gift shops, Pot Pourri in Brockenhurst and Inspiration in New Milton both shops well worth a visit.

If you don't feel like shopping bring your warm clothes and wellington boots and go for long walks in the New Forest or along the seafront at Milford-on-Sea before returning to The Cloud Hotel to relax in front of the log fire whilst enjoying one of our famous cream teas.

I am just about to launch our new website designed by Karl Jones of kn media. Karl designed my present website but like dance, business can never stand still so I felt it was time to redesign it. It should go live by the end of this week so I hope you will like it.

It's been another busy week for me because as well as a full hotel and busy restaurant I was booked to do a talk for the Lymington Town Yacht Club on Wednesday evening and for The Foresters Flower Club in Copythorne on Thursday evening.

The Wessex Women meet on Wednesday 12th October to hear Karen Guttridge of Slim Focus speak on 'Change your Thinking Change Your Weight' a subject most women are quite passionate about! I go Nordic walking with Karen three times a week and feel so much fitter and slimmer since I've been doing it.

I can't believe how quickly Christmas seems to be creeping up on us. If you want to book your Pre-Christmas lunch or dinner with us do so as soon as possible, bookings are coming in thick and fast so don't leave it too late to book yours and be dissappointed.

We are enjoying an Indian Summer in the New Forest at the moment long may it last.
