About Lucy

Lucy comes from an extensive events and catering background ranging from organising dinners at 10 Downing Street, exhibitions at London’s Earls Court, events for Fifteen and most recently running one of the UK’s largest children’s farm parks.
Lucy was brought up in the Ashwell area and taking over the Bushel and Strike has been like coming home for her. Having family in the village makes it the perfect setting for them to bring up their young daughter and bring a warm family welcome to The Bushel.
