Champagne Birthday Celebrations for Sheila Lishman

Another year and another birthday. But not an ordinary birthday for Sheila Lishman, who was celebrating her special birthday (the exact years you will have to guess!) with her two Holy Island friends, Pauline Patterson and Barbara Kyle. It was Pauline's idea to do a "ladies who lunch" and decided a champagne celebration at The Ship would just do nicely. On a lovely sunny day, with a glass of bubbly in hand rounded off a perfect lunchtime to celebrate Sheila's birthday.

Bucks Fizz Breakfast

Champagne breakfasts and champagne lunches have over the past few weeks proved popular at The Ship Inn, along with a champagne room welcome for those special occasions.

Pictured here enjoying their champagne breakfast (from L to R) are Lynda Brown from Leeds, Jean Ringrose from Harrogate and Gayda Jackson from Toronto. Gayda with her sister Lynda and friend Jean spent two enjoyable nights at The Ship on route to Cumbria where Gayda is researching her family tree. The "bucks fizz" breakfast will be part of a lasting memory of their stay on Holy Island which to quote their words, "the island was magical and spellbinding in an atmosphere of peace and total tranquility"
