Halloween, and the joys of pumpkins and trick or treating, should have passed by the time you read this. But don‘t forget that if you bought a pumpkin from the shop you still have time to enter the pumpkin carving competition. The deadline for your entries is Tuesday 7 November. Check the entry form for more details.
We are holding a “local food” tasting morning from 10.00 to 13.00 on Saturday 18th November. This follows a successful formula from previous years where a preview of some of our Christmas Fare will also be available for tasting and sale. Honesty Bakery will be in attendance with their excellent range of breads, a new range of wines and beers will be available to try as will cooking sauces and condiments produced in Ball Hill by Atkins and Potts, winners of many “Great Taste” awards. Other surprises are planned. Entry is free and everyone is welcome so please come along.
Many thanks to those of you who donated cakes or attended the Macmillan Coffee morning on 22 September, held in the Community Room at the shop. Together we raised £250 for the charity and also had an enjoyable time. Remember that the Community Room is available for hire; if you are interested come into the shop and enquire or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
