Avoid those crowds in the city and bag an unusual present by way of this distinctive art form from Barrasford artist, Neil Patterson. Scenes from the beautiful & historic ‘Roman Wall landscape’ are available for immediate purchase in the village shop.
At first, there were 300, but now we are down to the last couple of dozen! Get in quick!
How about this from local author, Sarah Fae? A children’s story told in rhythm and rhyme through the eyes of a young boy ‘Hector the Forest Protector’, but with a message for us all about conservation. A portion of the proceeds from sales will go to projects for rewilding areas of Northern England and the Scottish Highlands.
And we can sell you the cards & biros to go with them, too! 😁😁
Apple pressing this year will take place on the weekends of 26/27 September and 3/4 October from 10am until 4pm. Sadly, due to Covid19 restrictions, we are only able to press apples for residents in Humshaugh Parish and Wall Village.
Residents and visitors alike will be interested in the latest output from Humshaugh Publications. Based largely on the unpublished work of an anonymous historian, this book is well illustrated, not just with old photographs and illustrations that may be familiar to some, but with a host of original works assembled specifically for this publication. Available in the shop now for just £5.
From Friday 24 July, customers must wear a face covering when coming into the shop. Current government guidance says: “Under the new rules, people who do not wear a face covering will face a fine of up to £100, in line with the sanction on public transport and just as with public transport, children under 11 and those with certain disabilities will be exempt.”
