Month Four: Dyrham’s on site church pre-dates the house and is not only still used but the perfect venue for a thanksgiving/harvest festival service. Our usual team of ninja flower ladies were contracted to dress up the inside of the church, prior to the event… It was my job to set up a 1961 display of memorabilia as that was the year Dyrham was first owned by the National Trust. As we already have a ’61 display in our Tenant’s hall, (Servant’s area to you & me and nothing to do with David Tennant whatsoever..) After making numerous trips from the church to the office for exactly the right sort of pins for the display board, I got the display finished just in time to tidy up before the church needed to be locked up. Garden queen Sarah had even managed to expertly reverse the Kubota (big orange 4×4 golf cart thingy) up to the door of the church to help take away the unwanted greenery… Job done!
