November – Another historic month at No.fifty6. We have commemorated the Centenary of The Armistice in many ways. We have continued to have a variety of interesting guests cross our doorstep with many a story to tell. We have held a workshop in French on British Christmas traditions, we have started some new works and of course our animals have raised a smile or two.
