Sadly restrictions prevent us from opening due to National Lockdown. Julie and I are still making a slow recovery from testing positive for COVID-19 in October. We have fully decontaminated & deep cleaned the entire building to make it safe.
Ha'Penny Tea Room:
We have converted the Ha'Penny Tea Room from Tea Room
to Gift Shop following Government guidelines.
We are restricting the hours of trade to:
Saturday's ONLY from Saturday, 5 December 11am - 3pm.
You can view our new terms for sale on the Ha'Penny Page
ALL gifts can be purchased, ordered and collected during the week. Please support us!
We have managed to get all the rebranding artwork & signage done. The new signage is up. Keep a lookout!
3 new wall-mounted trees have been fitted & supplied by Skelton Civic Pride (Thank you Pam Batts and your team). We will be adding some more lights to help create a bit of a Christmas happy feeling on Skelton High street over the festive season.
Secret Santa Project:
It's a project close to our hearts. We work in partnership with Skelton Primary school and this year we hope to help more than 60 Skelton families with your support. Please visit our page
The support will be greatly appreciated by our local families and children who are really struggling, especially this year.
We are missing our staff, customers and the buzz which makes us the Wharton Arms family.
We know & understand that COVID-19 is temporary.
We are looking forward to 2021.
Love, Gerhard & Julie
