Hello everyone - this is the last message that I will post with Courtyard news!

So, to be clear - we are not selling The Courtyard - we will continue to own it. We are not closing The Courtyard - it will continue to operate as a cafe in the heart of the village.

But, from January 1st Geoff and I will no longer be running it. Instead, our chef Michael, is taking it over and will be running it with our usual team of staff.

It has been a difficult decision, we love The Courtyard and all that it has become with your support. But, all three of our girls are now well and truly
launched with careers and homes of their own so we feel it’s time to have some freedom to travel and pursue other interests and challenges.

Thank you so much for making a crazy idea into a successful venture - we could not have done it without you!

Thank you also to our wonderful staff team who have worked so hard to make it happen.
We will continue to live in the village so hope to keep in touch - especially as you have truly become so much more to us than simply “customers”!

Our final day will be Saturday 22nd December so we hope you might swing by to see us and maybe sign our memory book. We will be closing at 4.30 as usual.

Happy Christmas everyone - and every wish for a joy filled 2019.

From the Evans Family.
Anne and Geoff, Blossom and Lucy, Sarah and Adam and little Robyn and Evan xx
