Dog Days of Summer!

As we hit the height of summer with the anticipation of long hot sunny days

We can look forward to parks and picnics and a chance to loaf and laze!

Wimbledon starts with its famous tradition of Pimm’s, strawberries and cream

And Sir Andy Murray hoping that another wonderful win is not just a ‘pipedream’!

The annual Beer Festival takes place shortly with copious amounts of ales,

And where the heady atmosphere of fun, music, food and frivolity prevails!

The hanging baskets and containers in the High Street create a stunning array,

With the Festival bunting turning the town into a colourful and cheery display!

Here at The Moda House we have been painting hallway walls and doors

In the interest of the never-ending maintenance and upkeep cause!

So do come and stay and tuck into The Full Moda in all its glory,

And see the famous Arabic door and hear all about it with the full story!

There is a definite nip in the air and the central heating switch is firmly back on

 With the long, lazy hazy days of summer now sadly long gone.

 October is a month of conkers, pumpkins and everything that is Halloween

 From the costumes to the toffee apples and jack ‘o’ lanterns creating the spooky scene!

 Life in Chipping Sodbury is busy and hectic with plenty of action and activities

 With The Sodbury Players performing, and The Amadeus Concert to delight and please!

 Here at The Moda House the re-wiring is finally finished and another new bathroom installed,

 And the heating and hot water systems have been serviced and completely overhauled.

 Why not come for an Autumn visit and enjoy our homemade blackberry jam and marmalade,

 Plus some seasonal spiced stewed homegrown plums – Duncan’s latest crusade!

 But if you need even more encouragement, motivation or another reason.

 Visit Westonbirt Arboretum for its spectacular and stunning vibrant ‘fall’ season!

 So just before the clocks go back, come to Chipping Sodbury for a little get-away

 And stay at The Moda House where a warm welcome will ensure a wonderful and happy stay!

Another summer has almost passed and is just about to disappear

 With a slight nip in the air making it feel crisp, cool and clear.

 With harvest time here and the gentle start of falling leaves

 It will be time to pack away the T-shirts and bring out the long sleeves!

 As the schools and colleges return, and the shooting season well underway

 Visit the nearby Lady’s Wood Shooting School with instructions on how to hit the clay!

 The wonderful Dime Notes are performing at Chipping Sodbury Town Hall

 And The Sodbury Players are putting on The Edge of Darkness to enthral us all!

 The twice-yearly MOP Fair also takes place with a hint of a bygone age

 When agricultural labourers and their tools were available for all to engage.

 So during this ‘show off’ season come to The Moda House for a break and treat

 At Number 1 High Street which offers the very best in a meet and greet!

The Glorious 12th signifies the start of the shooting season for grouse

Aand it is also Duncan’s birthday so there will be a big celebration at The Moda House!

Summer is well and truly underway with the grass just worn to dust

And the BBQ’s busily working overtime before they go bust and succumb to rust!

In Chipping Sodbury we have the amazing Hedgehog and Owl meet and greet

With a chance to see these wonderful creatures both magnificent and sweet!

There is also Tudor music at Acton Court to honour Henry V111 and Anne Boleyn

And why not sample The Horseshoe’s very own Celestine Spa Gin!

Then there’s the ongoing Chipping Sodbury and Cotswold search for the small hare

Plus the nearby Hawkesbury Horticultural annual Show and Fair.

With so much going on a stay at The Moda House is an absolute must

To enjoy all that is wonderful in this glorious month of August!
