For almost 3 years, up to earlier this year, I was a volunteer at Calke, spending Saturdays as a room steward. I loved it, talking to the public and getting to really know and love the house and its history, not to mention the other volunteers. Sadly, I squeeze far too much into my life and I just couldn't fit it all in!

It was great to see so many local suppliers in such an historic setting and if you want to get in on the action, the next Fine Food Fair is a Christmas special - on Saturday 14 December - between 11 - 6pm. It'll come around quicker than you think and get there early to avoid the crowds!
