As many of you may have heard on the cheese grapevine or read in the press, Mandy Reed at Swaledale Cheese died.
I went to the funeral yesterday. It was a beautiful service, very dignified with pieces of music, chosen by Mandy’s family that I feel sure Mandy would have loved. At one point, Mandy’s brother described her laugh as a cross between a goat and a witch which raised a smile in an otherwise sombre celebration of Mandy’s life cut far too short.
All our thoughts are with Lou and Sam, Mandy’s children who will continue to run the business.
