6 Ways to use honey this winter.

Honey is fantastic all year round, but here are 6 more ways to use it, this winter. 1. As we all know, having a cold is nothing but a nuisance, so why not put a teaspoon of heather honey and a good squeeze of lemon juice in a cup of boiling water. The simple combination helps soothe your sore throat but also tastes rather good! 2.Honey + Porridge = lovely and heartwarming . A spoonful of honey in your breakfast porridge is healthier than sugar and tastes amazing; you will be ready to face the day ahead in no time! 3. Put it in your coffee! If you normally have sugar in your coffee- honey offers a nice alternative and it’s also healthier. So, put a teaspoon of your favourite Quince Honey farm honey into a shot of espresso and mix well. Top up with hot milk and give it a good stir. Lastly, we sprinkle some ground nutmeg on the top but cinnamon also works well! 4. Use it to treat minor cuts and burns! There is nothing worse than burning yourself on the oven whilst cooking, or cutting yourself with the new knives you got for Christmas. So, slather a layer of honey onto your cut or burn (use something clean to apply it with!). Not only is honey a natural antiseptic, but it also prevents infection. 5. Treat dry skin and chapped lips. Honey’s an especially good home remedy for those problem dry spots (like elbows). That’s because the sticky solution creates a moist healing environment and can also reduce inflammation. Apply to irritated areas and...

Christmas crafts (14th,21st Dec)

Our Christmas fun day on the 7th was a lot of fun, Santa made an appearance and the children got involved with all the Christmas games and activities taking place.  There is a Christmas craft table where they can design and make a Christmas decoration or cracker or be really creative and make a reindeer or Santa hat as well as a card to take away with them. The best decoration or cracker will win a prize! The children enjoyed writing their wish list to Santa and posting it in his North Pole post box. We hope to see more people call in this Saturday 14th and the 21st, just before Christmas!...
