2023, Living Free!

by | Jan 3, 2023

In the past few years we’ve all experienced so much disruption in our lives and so many negative pressures upon our families, friends and communities that it is understandable many people regard 2023 as another year of uncertainty and difficult challenges.

However, the River Haven team are entering the new year with tremendous energy and optimism. We are enormously grateful for the warm welcome we have received from our neighbours in the Valley and the region. The support and encouragement of so many has allowed us to make huge strides in just a few months.

2022 was the year we all arrived in the Valley determined to create something very special at our “Venue”. The pace has been breath taking, to such an extent that it is easy for all of us to forget we’ve only been operating for 4 months (and just over 1 month of our restaurant!).

So what will the River Haven team achieve in 2023? In a word – nothing!

Or to be more accurate nothing without your continued support, encouragement and participation. So, in thanking you all for your positive contributions to our first few months, we promise to enhance and expand our venture in 2023*.

Happy New Year, friends of River Haven!

*(and 2024 and 2025 and…)
