Muddy Matches visit Fordhall
Today we had a visit from two interesting siters, Lucy and Emma. They are travelling the country in a country cottage (campavan)- have you ever heard of a cottage travelling the British Countryside before? I know I haven't - promoting their new venture Muddy Matches, and they decided that they wanted to vist Fordhall Farm.
Muddy Matches is a website set up to help rural people meet others. Living in the countryside can be a very isolating life - unless you have 8000 landlords and over 200 volunteers! - and this website helps people get together. Whether it be for dating or for just making friends.
It is a fantastic idea and I know that the girls will make a great success of it. They seem to have been on quite an adventure so far and we hope they will write something for our newsletter about the interesting rural people they have met on their way and the problems they face to stay on their farms and in their businesses.
There may also be a Fordhall Singles Volunteer Weekend organised next summer as a result - watch out all those singletons...
They left Fordhall to go to a Speed Dating evening at Harper Adams University College - good luck girls! ;-)
Their website is definately worth a look - perhaps even pass it on to your friends.
