Thank you so much for this lovely farewell message.

We will be having an Open House for anyone who would like to pop into Butterfield House to join us for a drink and slice of the famous Butterfield Apple Pie on Sunday 18th March 2pm – 6pm. It will give us a chance to say ‘Goodbye’. Rathmell has been a large part of our lives and as a village it has changed over the years as villages must do to survive. We have seen many people move on and enjoyed meeting new ones coming into the village; many of you will stay our friends for life, and as Lynne has a weekly commitment in Settle we will keep in touch. Our new home will be in a small village near Knaresborough, not that far away! Of course our pony Marika and spaniel Summer are also moving with us. With Best Wishes to you all, David & Lynne.

Lynne and David Wilkinson
