Our five-month anniversary!

tree house bag designBoxing Day will mark the fifth month of the Tree House opening – sometimes it seems more like five weeks, other times it feels like a lifetime since we celebrated the opening day with a lovely evening concert of storytelling with Stephe Harrop and live music from Spicy Jazz.  It’s been quite a rollercoaster, and nearly came off the rails, but here we are, facing the new year with improved takings, a strong core of loyal customers and supporters, and new people finding us all the time.  We have just launched our twice-weekly film club, and I am hoping to create an increasingly full programme of events in 2014.

Here are a few photos to chart our progress.  It’s also fun to look back to the beginning of this blog and see how things have developed!  A year ago the whole thing was just an idea, with a bit of moral support from friends and councillors – I didn’t imagine when I started the blog that by this date we would be up and running and doing so well.  We are still not quite in profit – our overheads are crazily high – but we are getting there, which is marvellous.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year, and thank you all for your support at whatever level – even seeing that people read this website is an encouragement!  Let’s make the Tree House an even cosier, happier, community-enhancing place in 2014.
