Round and about High Trenhouse
Chris, the gardener, has been busy weeding and pruning and the grounds are looking great. Lots of baby rabbits are keen to eat the lupins. Our moorhens have hatched their second brood.
It is lovely to have enjoyed Spanish temperatures recently, sitting out on long summer evenings when the valleys have already sunk into darkness. The Yorkshire Dales feels like heaven on earth. Lush green valleys and the wild and lonely hills enable folk from the cities to refresh their minds, rejuvenate their bodies and rejoice in the spirit of adventure. Paradise!
Testimonial of the month
“Everything was superb! The venue, the setting, the food, the welcome, the tools, the hexagons, the LVT methodology…”

There are several opportunities each year for individuals to join personal developmental programmes for which High Trenhouse is ideal. Recess College runs ten-day programmes for either men or for women. Alternatively Jeff Jackson has a five-day Open Personal Mastery Programme coming up 21-25 September 2015.
“To live successfully requires a shift of perception that comes when you truly meet yourself. For that you need the right guide and the right circumstances. Jeff’s programme is heartily recommended”
John Varney, Centre for Management Creativity

Claim the date!
Getting just the right location for your event can make all the difference to its success, especially when you want exclusive use.
Establish the venue’s availability before you check participants’ diaries, rather than setting a date and hoping you can secure your chosen venue.
At High Trenhouse we can hold availability while you negotiate with participants. We even negotiate with other users, adjusting dates to try to meet everyone’s needs. Check with us early to avoid disappointment.

High Trenhouse has always pioneered tools for visual thinking and we look forward to delivery of a ThinkingWall® Freestander, a recent innovation from Logovisual. This mobile equivalent of the Thinking Wall whiteboard in our conference room has proven an immediate hit with the BBC, Cisco and Sony.
Contact us if you would like individual or company LVT training (in association with Logovisual Ltd.)
We have helped raise funds to re-roof the nave of St Michael’s church in Kirkby Malham. Just as nearly all the funds fell into place, thieves stole the lead off the south aisle and more funds have to be found. With a total cost over £200,000 the fund-raising continues. www.justgiving.com/pcc-kirkby-malham.
Known as “the Cathedral of the Dales” the church is well worth a visit.
New farm shop in Skipton
We are glad to see the former Nicholas Smith garage on the outskirts of Skipton is at last re-incarnated as Keelham Farm Shop (www.keelhamfarmshop.co.uk) – a tempting feature on the journey to or from the Dales. Don’t overlook our local farm shop in Airton (www.townendfarmshop.co.uk), famous for its Yorkshire Chorizo and its fantastic tearoom with homemade cakes.
