For the next fortnight only ( until 30th Oct) Louise Ward has her pottery on sale. Louise makes a range of mugs from small express to large hot chocolate or soup sized mugs, perfect for those colder winter days. She also has a few bowls and animal sculptures on show and is happy to take commissions.
There are two local crafters displaying their work in the shop over the next 4 weeks until 16th of October. Humshaugh Honey are selling a range of lip balms and an insect repellent based on bees wax. As their name suggests these are very local crafters.
The Stuft Olive has a range of lovely punch needle products from key rings to placemats and pictures. Commissions can be taken if specific designs and colours are desired, just pick up a business card from the display and contact the maker direct.
Check them out when you are next in the shop.
Just one apple pressing weekend this year, so bring only good ripe apples please! They can be delivered to the village hall between 9.00am & 4.00pm on Sat 30th Sept and Sun 1st Oct.
Having ‘proved’ their worth with 11 years of service, with over 11,000 small, large, white, wholemeal, seeded, sun-dried tomato and olive loaves baked, and having ‘mixed’ it with half a dozen or so associate bakers over the years, our 2 Master Breadmakers have decided it is time to hang up their aprons. Can you help us keep freshly baked, ultra-low-food-miles, tasty bread in the shop? Can you, or do you know someone who could, ‘rise’ to the occasion? John & Dick are willing to train up the next ‘batch’ of bakers on Friday afternoons in September in the village hall kitchen from 1.30 until about 4pm. If you are interested, leave your details in the shop or e-mail email@example.com No ‘loafers’, please.
