After all the snow and ice last week and people stocking up on the basics, things have returned back to normal in the shop - except for today which has been rather exciting, we have had BBC cameras visiting the shop today for a BBC Breakfast feature on the Localism Bill, hopefully to be shown on Friday Morning (all depends on the Localism Bill). So look out for Helen, Graham and maybe the odd shot of myself (Heather). Here's the link: www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11975757
There are only a few fruit and veg shopping days left till Christmas so make sure you pop into the shop to order all your goodies for Christmas day meal.
You may have seen earlier on in the week in the news about a shortage of Brussels Sprouts this winter, but don’t fret we currently have both loose sprouts and sprout trees to tickle your taste buds with, they are also our Product of the Month.
We have recently had a delivery from the Good Soup company so there are plenty of soups to choose from to warm you up on these very cold days of late.
