With 2016 drawing to a close, we look back on the year with fond memories at some of the great sporting, historic and life events that all took place in 2016.
It was a phenomenal year for many and a successful one in particular for TeamGB out in Rio for the Summer Olympics, to name but one of many memorable events and success stories of 2016!
With success in mind, this called for celebration and what better way to celebrate the year than on New Year’s Eve with a right royal knees up of a party!
For the second year running, I was lucky enough to attend our New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner and Disco at The Kimberley as a guest and a pleasure it was too!
The scene was set for a sparkling and delectable night of New Year’s dining, dancing and debauchery (of the classy kind of course!), we are not THAT sort of establishment!
On arrival we were greeted with delicious canapes and a glass of my favourite fizz, Kir Royale.
We also met more friends at the Hotel who were joining us for the NYE celebrations.
I love these occasions, for reasons like this, bringing friends together from far and wide over the festive season, to laugh and joke and enjoy good food and drink around a table together, there’s just nothing better!
Shortly after, we were seated in the Restaurant for our Gala Dinner, where the tables were dressed in white and gold and looking very elegant indeed.
We began with our starters, which of course none of us could remember who was having what, after selecting our choices several weeks previous!
I have been on the other side of this scenario as a waitress serving before and it’s frustrating, but amusing for both parties!
Here we have the Artichoke and Mushroom Veloute and the Goats Cheese Bon Bons and some delicious homemade bread.
After arguing over who was having what, we finally tucked into said starters, which were all delicious and kept us all quiet and out of mischief, for a short while anyway!
Accompanying us during dinner was an Electric Guitarist, playing hits from the 50s right through the Decades.
He was great and got the crowd singing along and even got some up dancing towards the end of his set and after dinner!
After the starters, we were given a mini Cherry Sorbet with Kirsch Cherries each to cleanse the palate before mains.
Whilst we awaited mains, we opened our NYE favours boxes, which everyone had in front of their table setting. Each box contained a streamer, a party horn, a party popper and a long balloon that you have to blow up through a mini straw and then you let it go and it flies off in all directions, making a silly raspberry/whining noise as it’s going down; they’re lots of fun!
Last year they were a real ice breaker, getting people in the party spirit and resulted in half the restaurant in fits of laughter, as they’d fly off in all directions and land on people’s heads or nearby tables, but this year they were somewhat less well received, so we put away until after dinner.
Out came the mains which were simply divine! Here was my Fillet of Beef, which was so succulent and juicy and cooked to utter perfection!
To follow, I had a Raspberry, Milk and White Chocolate Mille Feuille for dessert, a delectable treat to finish off a wonderful meal with!
Tea and Coffee and Petit Fours followed, by which time Derek the DJ was in full swing pumping out the party tunes for us to disco dance the night away to into 2017!
As midnight drew near, we charged our Champagne flutes ready for Big Ben’s chimes.
As the clock struck twelve, we wished one another a Happy New Year, exchanged hugs and kisses with loved ones and proceeded to cross and link arms and sing the traditional Auld Lang Syne to see in the New Year!
The Disco and celebrations continued through to 1am and we’d all had a wonderful night, staff included as we celebrated another year passing and a new one beginning.
From all of us at The Kimberley Hotel, we wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
All the best for 2017, make it your best year yet!
With the Big Day just days away, there’s still plenty of time to get those last minute Christmas bits, or even begin your Christmas shopping, should you not have done so yet (which I know will be many)!
After years of practise, I buy throughout the year, so come Christmas, there’s just little nick nacks to get for people and I can enjoy the festivities, rather than stress about present shopping and finding that perfect gift.
As we will all know, it’s always when you’re not looking for something that you find something truly wonderful!
I headed over to friends in Headingley late afternoon last Saturday armed with Xmas Jumpers for us all to wear! My friends either hate me or are really good at humouring me! Either way, they knew they were going to have to wear one, but surprisingly they got right in the spirit, boys included, one of whom picked the elf dress with bells on, suit you Sir!
We took a taxi into the City centre around tea time in high Christmas spirits and were greatly looking forward to evening market shenanigans ahead!
On arriving at the market we headed straight to a fried cheese chalet that one of my friend’s had been telling me about on the way. It sounded amazing and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t tried it before as I love the likes of deep fried Brie and so on!
There were all sorts of different selections on offer, most of them on long wooden skewers; from mushrooms and cheese, ham and cheese to just vegetables or onion rings and mozzarella sticks.
I (eyes bigger than belly as always) opted for both the mushroom and cheese and a salami and cheese skewer.
I’m sure they seemed smaller behind the counter but they were huge when the lady handed them over to me out of the frier!
They were also served with a selection of sauce. The name of the sauce I had now escapes me, but it was very nice, not too disimilar to a thousand island dressing.
Here was my friend Becky’s plain cheese skewer.
To my dismay however, I now had no hands free to shop! We walked a little further and round the corner where we saw some tables and long benches, so we stopped here to eat our skewers.
It had been heavily raining just before we arrived at the market, so unfortunately we were left to stand, which was preferable to a soggy bottom, had we sat!
I managed one and a half of my skewers, then on we continued, conveniently coming to the mulled wine and hot chocolate chalet next.
As always at these markets, I get carried away and excited and go straight in for the most interesting sounding drink on offer, so I chose Mulled Wine with Amaretto, Rum and Cream.
It was served in a Franfurter mug, which you paid a £3 deposit on and could either keep or return for your deposit back.
The drink was £5.50 and the mug was small, so initially it was £8.50 for the drink! I was thankful that later I was driving, as at those prices, I wouldn’t be having many if I wasn’t driving anyway!
It’s a captive audience and they certainly know how to charge at these places. Our next find was white and milk chocolate covered marshmallows and fruit.
I chose a white chocloate covered strawberry and marshmallow skewer. £4! It was nice, but a nice price too. I spend money like it’s going out of fashion at the best of times, but I recall saying to the marshamallow chalet ladies, “I’m going to have to print some more money!”.
Still we remained in high festive spirits and we knew what to expect with prices, but in true Yorkshire-man style, it never fails to shock me how much things cost sometimes!
On we went, meandering around the market, where there was live music and also a big chalet designed like an alpine ski lodge, which of course was the main bar!
It’s not overly big, but has a few rows of chalets to it, with the usual beautifully crafted traditional German Christmas bits on offer amongst other various bits and bobs.
It was more for a wander than to buy anything and there were a few bits I spotted that I had already bought from craft shows in the Summer, for example at the Harrogate Flower Show and Great Yorkshire Show.
Halfway around, we debated a go on the Carousel, but at £3 each and the speed it was going, we didn’t bother in the end. It was making us dizzy just watching it, so on we pondered, coming to a fab stall that sold personalised pegs!
Don’t ask me why, but I love pegs and collect them, so revelled in the fact I could buy personalised ones and formed somewhat of a queue with my excitement and mass order of pegs!
I drew quite a lot of custom to what was previously a quiet empty stall with my peg-happiness!
Next it was time for a giant long Bratwurst sausage and when I say long, I mean LONG!
I ended up sharing mine with one of the girls, one was definitely
enough between two after my cheese and marshmallow skewers collectively!
We did a couple more laps around the chalets and stalls, whilst enjoying and singing along to the live music and bought a couple of bits, which I can’t tell you about in case the family read this! Pics to follow on those after Christmas, but ornamental, pretty trinket type bits.
All in all an absolutely cracking evening out with friends and there’s even a few fair rides and stalls just out of the market to enjoy and also a life size snow globe that four of you can go in and play around in, but again at a delightful cost of £8!
The market is still on until December 18th, so head on over, we’d highly recommend, but wrap up warm and take plenty of cash!
We’d like to wish a huge congratulations to all the walkers and everyone else involved in the charity walk for Hayden’s Sanctuary Project and Acorns Children’s Hospice this weekend!
Three teams completed 318 miles collectively this weekend, which is an outstanding achievement and we are extrememly proud of every single one of them.
Monies are still being donated/collected and there are plans for a fundraiser event in July for the same causes, so these proceeds will also be added to the pot, but so far, the JustGiving page is well on it’s way to hitting £1K at present and that’s without tallying up everyone’s sponsor forms yet too!
The route had to be amended somewhat on the days, as it attempted to take us down A roads, which were often dangerous at times and highly uneven ground to walk on for a lengthy amount of time.
Team 1 consisted of two people who encountered massive setbacks in training, therefore they did their very best and walked as far as they could around a park instead, completing 24 miles each which is great considering they thought they would have to pull out alltogether.
Team 2 was myself and two others. We awoke at 4.30am in Leicester where we were staying on Friday and Saturday night and caught an early morning train to Wolverhampton, setting off from our starting point around 8.15-8.30am.
We had glorious weather all morning with some lovely Spring sunshine to spur us on our way.
At around 3.30pm we reached Tamworth, our halfway point for Day 1, after only having stopped on a couple of occasions for toilet breaks and a quick stretch.
Like I say, we had to negotiate some tricky A roads and roundabouts, which unfortunately slowed us down a bit.
We took rest, shelter and food in a restaurant on The Jolly Sailor Retail Park in Tamworth, as on reaching this point, the heavens were starting to open and heavy rain was setting in.
We spent over an hour here refuelling and waiting for the rain to clear and pass over a little bit.
Socks were changed, stretches done, several toilet trips made and off we trot again, attempting to make headway towards Leicester for the second leg of Day 1.
Further A roads and roundabouts were negotiated along the way, still in the slight drizzle of rain that remained, until we finally approached a B road and some pavements/footpaths again at last!
We continued through the Staffordshire and Warwickshire countryside, meandering our way through towns and villages and enjoying the sights and scenery along the way, until the rain finally stopped and a lovely sunset emerged on the horizon of the evening sky.
We reached a village named Warton at around 9pm, when one of our group was struggling and we needed to stop.
We took this opportunity as a welcomed break to put our feet up and refuel on tea and coffee at a lovely pub in said village, named The Fox & Dogs.
They warmly welcomed us in with friendly smiles and on hearing we’d walked from Wolverhampton all day, seemed shocked, worried and asked why! They had fabulous senses of humour and were interested in hearing all about what we were doing and the charities we were doing it for.
They plyed us with tea and made us feel at home, allowing us to put our feet up and rest on comfy sofas.
During this rest period, we could see it going dark and after being out for over 12 hours already, decided to call it a night.
We were still 20 miles away from Leicester, our destination for Day 1 and it would have meant walking through village then country road and so on for said 20 miles, with limited street lighting too. Plus we still hadn’t properly eaten since 4pm, so we took the sensible option to call our emergency driver and ask to be picked up and taken back to our hotel in Leicester so we could get to bed and feel refreshed and ready to start Day 2.
Team 3 consisted of three more people who were attempting the full route in 20 hours, setting off from Wolverhampton at 7pm and going right through the night.
Our driver was also on hand for teams 2 and 3, to meet at check points with water, energy drinks, food, aid etc.
He needed to make a stop with team 3 after collecting us from Warton, so we met up with them before returning to our hotel that night.
It gave us all a boost seeing the other teams and we wished the night team well as they trekked off into the dark, armed with their head torches and high viz vests!
On arriving back in Leicester, we received a call to say a member of Team 3 had pulled a muscle and couldn’t continue. He hobbled on for 10 miles bless him, then they called it a night at the 30 mile mark. Our other emergency driver who was waiting in Stamford (our finishing point) on standby, came out to the rescue!
Team 3 retreated to Stamford and the remaining two uninjured members had 2 hours rest, then continued for a further 30 miles around Stamford, taking them through to Sunday afternoon.
Meanwhile back in Leicester, after a lovely night’s sleep, albeit not long enough, my team got up around 9am. We knew there would have to be further amendments to the walk that day, so we leisurely got ready and enjoyed a hearty breakfast before checking out of the hotel around 11am.
On liasing with Team 3 and realising the route would once again take us down a 15 mile streth of a dangerous A road, we made alterations to our plans for Day 2.
I followed our emergency driver in my car up to Stamford and parked up there.
We then got a lift 5 miles back out of Stamford to a village called Ketton, where it looked safe to walk i.e. there was a footpath!
We walked back into Stamford, then generally wandered around Stamford town, clocking up a further 10 miles on Day 2, before having to once again call it a day.
People waiting to see us at the finish line, which was Hayden’s house, needed to get off, as it was getting late into Sunday evening now and Hayden was also going to bed and we wanted to see him before he did so, as after all, it was all for him and Acorns of course, so this made it all worthwhile seeing his little happy smiling face!
I have already completed just shy of two full marathons, but have decided to complete another 40 miles over the next week or so, in my own area, to make it upto the original 80-90 mile target.
Once again a huge well done to everyone involved and a huge thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your kind donations!
We even received random donations from strangers along the way too, which was really lovely of them!
We will keep you informed of how much we raised when we have a final total, but the JustGiving link remains live for now, should you still kindly wish to donate.
Until the next one troops, on behalf of everyone at The Kimberley Hotel, thank you and very WELL DONE!!!
Each year, we try and do our bit for Charity wherever possible, whether it be with our MacMillan coffee mornings, #XmasJumperDay or other activities throughout the year.
Either way, we love to be involved in a good cause, often being a cause extremely close to our hearts.
On April 9-10th, I am taking part in a sponsored charity walk from Wolverhampton to Peterborough, arranged by my friend Sonya who is from Wolverhampton.
The walk will take place over two days, with an overnight stay in Leicester.
There is another group that are setting off twelve hours after the first group and attempting the walk in one go, walking/running through the night! I shall not be in that group!
It is a big enough personal challenge for me as it is, as I have never been one for long distance. Love my dance and fitness, but always used to try and duck out of cross country at school, so this will indeed be a challenge for me!
We finish the walk in Peterborough where my friends Corinne and Michael live with their sons, one of whom is Hayden, the boy we are raising funds for, along with Acorns Children’s Hospice.
Hayden is three and a half years old. He is non-verbal autistic and has a GDD of 11 months. He suffers with OPD and hypermobility and has severe learning needs and no danger awareness. He is currently having tests to find a reason for his recurrent seizures. He will also need corrective surgery on his feet to ensure he does not end up in a wheelchair. Hayden is a happy lively little boy who loves to play and run around. With these vital funds raised, we hope to be able to build Hayden a sensory room, giving him a safe environment to play, learn and sleep.
With the funds raised, Hayden would benefit greatly and so would other children affected with similar conditions.
Acorns Children’s Hospice have multiple branches and perform a great service and help to parents.
To find out more visit Facebook and search ‘Hayden’s Sanctuary Walk’ and ‘Hayden’s Sanctuary Project” https://www.facebook.com/events/138479069853882/
50% of the donations will go to funding ‘Hayden’s Sanctuary Project’ to build him a sensory room; a safe place to learn, play and sleep, containing special lighting, music, and sensory objects. It can be used as a therapy for children with limited communication skills and low danger awareness.
The remaining 50% will go to the registered charity Acorns Children’s Hospice, which provide care and support to life limited or life threatened children & their families across the heart of England.

Sonya has set up a Just Giving page where people can kindly donate should they wish to do so. This can be found at https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/sonya-williams13
I also have a personal sponsor form for all my friends and family to sponsor me on. Some think I won’t complete this, as it is some 88 miles, but I have bags of determination if nothing else and as you have read, it’s for an absolutely fantastic and worthy cause!
If anyone is in the area on the above dates and sees us walking/running by, do cheer us on, stop and say hi or give us a wave! =D
I shall be keeping you updated on my training and progress in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, wish me luck!!
With the ever changing climate, the weather has been up and down this Winter, going from very mild to bitter cold overnight.
With this in mind, we wanted to make sure you’re all wrapped up this Winter!
We’ve found a great website from AgeUK with some brilliant tips on keeping warm and well worth a read.
The elderly are particularly susceptible to the cold, so look out for your elders over these chilly months.
With the busy Christmas week done, we turned our efforts to our New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner & Disco.
Every year we host a New Year’s extravaganza for our guests and the only difference this year, was that I would be attending as a guest!
I was thoroughly looking forward to enjoying an evening of delicious drinks, fantastic food and cracking company! After all, the festive season is all about spending time with family and loved ones.
On arriving at the hotel we headed through to the Resident’s Bar & Lounge to be greeted with welcome drinks of Kir Royale; an excellent way to start the evening as I love a Kir Royale (Prosecco and Creme de Cassis)!
Whilst enjoying our welcome drinks and nattering away to family we’d just met up with, we were soon offered canapes that were being served around the lounge and bar area.
The canapes included tasters of Venison, Smoked Salmon and Goats Cheese & Cranberry and were very yummy indeed!
The scene was set for a perfect evening and as I made my way back through to the lounge, I was delighted to find the Magician for the evening, Tom Hudson aka Afro Magic, mingling amongst the guests and knew we were in for a treat!
Tom is a personal friend of mine and performed at a recent bash for me, so I knew just what to expect!
I’m such a big kid when it comes to magic, absolutely love it and become very excitable, as I’m sure Tom would tell you and indeed the other guests!
I watched on in awe as he performed magic for my Aunt and Uncle, which caused quite a stir and there was soon a small audeince of other guests who’d gathered round to see what was happening.
See our Facebook page for videos.
We were then invited through to the dining room to take our seats for dinner.
We had already pre ordered our selections, so awaited the first course being served.
I began with Goats Cheese Bon-Bon. It was presented as three mini bon bon’s, deep fried and filled with Goats Cheese on a bed of salad leaves, delicious!
Next up was a Gin & Tonic sorbet to cleanse the palate bewteen courses, again this was delicious!!
The main course followed with a beautiful piece of Fillet of Beef served with fondant potato, spinach and seasonal vegetables finished with a lovely jus.
The beef was cooked to perfection and so soft!
Next up was dessert. I’d opted for an interesting choice of Pistachio & Olive Oil cake. Odd in theory, but absolutely divine in reality! It was garnished with a chocolate sorbet and was simply scrumptious!
By this point, I was getting rather full, but feeling extrememly satisfied all the same!
During dinner, guests were able to have a giggle with the individual party boxes we’d each been provided with.
One of the contents was a long balloon that you had to blow up with a little straw, then let it off and it flew around the dining room making a funny noise, making everyone laugh, great fun!
Also during this time, Afro Magic continued around the dining room, mingling between the guests and performing table side magic between courses.
This went down a storm and would have to say he was probably the biggest hit of the night with guests and staff alike!
He never fails to delight and amaze with his magic tricks and you’re never too old to enjoy magic in my opinion. I even got to bring home my cards as souveniers!
Here is one where he burnt the underside and made my actual card appear on the card I’d selected, MAGIC!!!
Come the end of the New Year’s Eve Gala dinner, our guests were nicely warmed up and ready to party into 2016 with our resident party DJ Derek, who played all the well known hits, party songs, requests and more!
Before we knew it, it was time for the big countdown to midnight.
We grabbed our champagne flutes and gathered together with family on the dancefloor, ready to toast the New Year.
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
The clock struck twelve and the room erupted into cheers, well wishes and kisses all round, swiftly followed by a sing song of Auld Lang Syne of course!
2016 had arrived and we danced our way into the wee hours with our fellow guests.
Such a fun evening and quality time had with family, which is what the festive season is all about after all!
To anyone who came along, I hope you had as much fun as I did! Looking forward to this year’s already!!

On Friday 25th September, Macmillan hosted The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and once again, The Kimberley Hotel got involved!
This year we held ours from 12-4pm, so it was more of a coffee afternoon really, but we still had cakes available for our guests to enjoy, particularly the ones who’d been out on a day trip and had missed all the afternoon action, later that evening.
The cakes all looked divine and superbly homemade by one of the Director’s wives.
We’d even been kindly donated some yummy scones by Dean’s Garden Centre in York which went down a storm with staff and guests alike, so thank you very much to Dean’s for their kind donation to the day, many a scone was enjoyed by all!
We tempted lots of guests who were checking in, to come down for a nibble and a natter too, thanks to our plate of treats up on Reception!
Lots of delights were also enjoyed by many a staff member who were able to come down for a quick break and giggle!
At 4pm, we amalgamated what was left onto a smaller table and covered and kept to one side for the guests who had been out and missed the coffee afternoon and we continued raising pennies for charity well into Friday evening!
At a final count we raised £81.53 which is nearly three times as much as last year! We were very pleased with that, considering so many people and companies were holding their coffee mornings/afternoons on the same day!
Next year we may host it on the Saturday and endeavor to double the amount we raised this year!
Thank you to everyone who came along and for your kind donations to Macmillan, a charity and cause close to so many of our hearts. See you all next year!
We were lucky enough to have the chance to visit the Autumn Flower Show once again this year on the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate.
This is the third time in a row we’ve visited the show and it didn’t disappoint!
On arriving at the show this year, we discovered that the entrance had moved, as renovations were underway on the Events Centre.
This had not been previously mentioned and much to our dismay, there was a bit of a walk before we even got into the show.
With the refurbishment work happening on the Events Centre, this meant things had moved places from where we had previously come to know them being at other flower shows we had visited here.
Once we’d gotten our bearings though, we were off!
We were blessed with lovely weather and glorious sunshine on this mid September Saturday afternoon and nice weather is always a bonus for any day out!
The first things we came across were art and sculpture pieces. These pieces were on either side of the pathway leading up to the halls and main section of the show.
Also in this area was “Inspiration Street” – A row of inspiring pieces in the garden, as you will see from our photos.
On taking in the lovely garden displays, we continued up the pathway and headed up through the first lot of stalls, which included plants, flowers, garden ornaments and outdoor clothing to name but a few!
After a short browse we decided it was time for lunch, so went off in search of the food tents.
After a nice lunch and a well earned rest for the feet, we continued on our way around the show.
We decided to next take in the exhibition halls where lots of plants, flowers, trees and of course the giant vegetables were on display!
There were some stunning displays, which I’m sure you will agree when you take a look at our photos from the day!
Gardeners and growers had come from far and wide around the country and world to exhibit they’re produce at the show this year.
One of our favourite flower displays this year, were all the way from Holland!
The giant vegetable competition did not disappoint and they seemed even more ginormous than last year! Such a spectacle and as you can imagine, we captured lots of images for you all to see and enjoy!
After having a good look around the flower and veg exhibitions, we moved onto the craft and gift stall halls.
These shows are ideal for finding quirky and unique gifts for birthdays or Christmas. I often get many a gift from here in preparation for Christmas. There really are some truly amazing finds at shows like these!
The September sun was slowly going down and the show was soon to draw to a close, so we made the most of our final bit of time there and saw as much as we could.
There was some beautiful garden furniture to look at still and lots of stunning sculptures for sale as we meandered our way through the final stalls at the Flower Show.
Just before leaving we finally found our favourite stall of all, where they sell hand crafted goodies for your home and garden. We always purchase something from them, love their stuff! This is the stall where the hand carved tree men as I call them are from!
It was soon time to depart from the show, but a lovely, sunny, fun-filled day had been had and although we were leaving with aching feet and tired bodies, we’d made some great purchases and seen lots of lovely things and ultimately had a great day out!
We would recommend the Spring or Autumn Flower Show to anyone visiting or even living in Harrogate that may have not yet visited the show, as as you have read, it’s a lovely day out for all ages!
On Friday 25th September, the world comes together to host the biggest coffee morning, all in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support.
Once again this year, The Kimberley Hotel will hold a Macmillan Coffee Morning, but ours will be a coffee afternoon, as we are holding ours from 12-4pm.
We wanted to run it a little later in the day this year, as per previous requests and perhaps to also tempt some of our guests who are checking in!
Our coffee afternoon will be held in Signature’s Lounge Bar and the Conistone Suite, situated downstairs, within the hotel. Please don’t hesitate to ask for directions at reception from our friendly staff, who will be happy to point you in the right direction!
This year, it’s a bit of a family affair as it were, as one of the Director’s wives is baking all of our cakes for our forthcoming coffee afternoon and trust me, she has brought in some homemade cakes for us all to enjoy before and you’re in for an absolute treat!
She bakes some fantastic cakes and will also be including a sugar free selection for you to try and enjoy and also for any of our Diabetic guests.
This is a separate issue close to our hearts and something that is now becoming much more in demand.
We hope you can pop by, say hello and enjoy some delicious cakes and coffee (or tea).
Look out for the green balloons and we look forward to seeing you on Friday 25th September!
