Just 3 days after we introduced this new line, the shelf was empty! We should be able to source more within 10 days or so, so keep your eyes open. If you did buy some and liked it, let us know if you’d buy it again.
Get in touch with your inner Gromit, and hare along to Humshaugh Village Shop to try out their new line: organic cheese, hand-crafted from the milk of the pedigree Ayrshire cows at Slack House organic farm just over the border in Cumbria, where all that rain helps to produce such sweet grass for grazing. And do tell us if you like it!
Those wily Humshaugh costermongers have sourced a good supply of flour for all you bakers out there. But, if it takes you longer to get here than to bake a sourdough loaf (10 mins at 210C, then 20 mins at 190C), best not travel!
Those nice people at the First & Last Brewery in Elsdon are delivering free to the NE46 postcode area. Check out their website shop for some lipsmackin’ deals! https://firstandlastbrewery.co.uk/

Humshaugh COVID-19 Response
Key organisations in Humshaugh are organising a collective response to help our community cope with the impact of the COVID-19 virus.
Humshaugh Village Shop will be the “hub” for providing goods and access to information on wider services. There will be a volunteer-run delivery service of food, including ready-meals, newspapers and other essentials. The Shop website (http://www.humshaughshop.co.uk/) will provide information on other services.
If you are in a vulnerable group and/or self-isolating, particularly if you live alone, you can arrange for deliveries or ask for help with any other practical issues by calling:
If we cannot help we will do our utmost to find someone who can.
In line with Government and other advice group activities in the Village Hall are cancelled until further notice. St Peter’s Church Services have also had to stop; however, local clergy are offering personal support and St Peter’s will remain open for private prayer.
