Keld - A breath of fresh air

When an opportunity arises in Keld the local residents certainly know how to fill it!  Sleeves rolled up and rollers to the ready they soon gave the Public Hall Reading Room a new lease of life.  A quick clean, a fresh coat of paint, some tastefully mounted artwork and furniture rearranged, the room has been transformed into a welcome 'pop-up tearoom'.

Keld Public Hall, in the centre of the village, has made the perfect self-service winter tearoom and is raising welcome funds for the Public Hall but more importantly and what has come as a surprise to all involved is the warm, friendly atmosphere that is evident the moment you walk in.  Fellow walkers sit and chat and compare notes on where they have been, the sights & sounds, the conditions underfoot and inevitably the WEATHER! 
No wifi, 3G, mobile reception or any such technological distraction.  No heads bowed, no eyes lowered, no thumbs twitching just plain, old fashioned conversation. 
Keld is a breath of fresh air in more ways than one!
