FROM ONE EXTREME TO ANOTHER – Last month was all about the snow and now we are experiencing what amounts to a heat wave with temperatures reaching 23C and even 24C in some places here in the sunny South! What a change – but is this Spring or early Summer? And will it last? That is the question …
DOUGHNUTS – These are delivered every Wednesday and Saturday morning and are proving so popular that no matter how many we order they just fly off the shelf. At just 95p for the jam ones and £1 for the iced ones they are deliciously good value. If you worry that you might miss them, why not pre-order the day before? This system worked very well for the hot cross buns at Easter and gluten-free bread can be ordered in the same way. Call us on 871211 to place an order.
REMINDER REGARDING THE SHOP AGM – We hope that shareholders will come to the AGM on Friday 12th May in the Steeple Ashton Village Hall. Doors open at 6.30 for drinks and nibbles with the meeting starting at 7pm. The minutes of last year’s AGM are now on the noticeboard in the shop. All shareholders are welcome and if you wish to become one applications forms are available in the shop – £10 per share. The present Committee is willing to stand again but nomination forms are available if you should wish to nominate someone – nominations must be received by Friday 4th May.
TASTING TRACKLEMENTS – There are some new chutneys for you to try – we will keep them in the fridge but please feel free to sample – spoons and crackers at the ready in the Coffee Shop. New recipes include Apple and Cider Brandy Chutney, Thai Spice Jelly, Original Onion Marmalade, Seville Orange Breakfast Marmalade, and lastly, my favourite, Fiery Banana Chutney.
