It was an absolute honour to host John's 80th birthday here at Clayhill this weekend.
Moving here in 1943, when John was only 5 years old, he has lived and worked on the farm all his life. When we bought the farm from him, and his wife Alison in 2017, we knew it was going to be difficult for them to see the place change... They have been so supportive of what we have done with the place though and we see them both regularly as they are still our neighbours. -
It couldn't have been more fitting to have them both celebrating this special day here, which also coincided with their 55th wedding anniversary too! As a first major function for Clayhill, it felt very right to have John and Alison at the heart of it. Long may the life of this site and the people who have walked and worked here live on, and on.
