Well, we’ve been open for a few weeks now and the rather blatant wall sign seems to be working, we have been very busy! Lots of visitors have been calling in and asking for help or suggestions, mostly it’s been seamless but there have been some hiccups. We understand the the gardens at Heligan have been lost for a while but lots of visitors are asking for tickets for the Hanging Gardens. Do you think Babylon is near the Italian Garden or the Butler’s Walk. Imagine if we found that!
But it’s not just the visitors that get confused. Bob and I were chatting in the shop when a nice old boy wandered in and asked if there was any bass in the village. Whilst Bob was suggesting various pubs I was wondering if it was even in season. We looked at each other in confusion. Bass has a season? Maybe Midlanders only come to Meva in the summertime? Clarification came when the old boy looked at me and said, “since when was beer seasonal?”
