This week in the Village Shop
Don’t Forget Father’s Day June 20th.
All Dad’s deserve to be spoilt on Father’s Day and what better way than with a selection of beer or wine, perfect for putting their feet up and watching the football. We have 3 beer and 3 wine carriers to give away when purchased with 6 bottles of beer or 6 bottles of wine. Made from sustainable jute these carriers are comfortable to carry thanks to the padded handles. They also feature a flat base and gusset allowing them to be filled and stand comfortably without tipping over. We only have 3 of each so when they’re gone, they’re gone! Father’s Day greeting cards will also be in the Shop from Tuesday.
Strawberries At Last!
Finally (we hear you say!), the first of the season’s delicious strawberries from Lutton Farm will be available in the Village Shop from Monday 14th June. Delayed due to the awful weather last month, let’s hope we can look forward to a long strawberry season now.
And the Winners Were….
Congratulations to Nick Compton-Marriott for winning first prize in our World Gin Day raffle on Saturday. Nick won a bottle of Titchmarsh Tipple No2, our orange and pomegranate gin. Jenny Snowden won the 2nd prize of a small bottle of Titchmarsh Tipple No.1 and Sue and Rick Johnston won 3rd prize – a trio of Fever Tree mixers. Thanks to everyone who bought raffle tickets and taking part in the fun. Also thanks to Duncan Williams and Jo Hunter for hosting the gin tasting.
More beer stocks will be arriving this week, including bottles of Peroni and cans of Kronenbourg. Still no news of supplies from Nene Valley Bitter, who are concentrating on their cask ales.
We are fully prepared for the summer and have stocked up the ice cream freezer with every flavour of Magnums including Classic Chocolate, White Chocolate, Ruby, Double Choc & Strawberry, Gold Caramel Billionaire and White Chocolate and Cookie. Not to mention tubs of Kelly’s Ice Cream in Vanilla, Chocolate, Honeycomb and Raspberry Ripple.
On Saturday we welcomed Fraser Love as our latest youth volunteer. Fraser joins Adam Sallabanks who began volunteering last month on Wednesday’s after school and Victoria Hope who has been helping out on Sundays for several months now. It’s great to have such keen and enthusiastic youth volunteers who want to do their bit for the community as well as learning vital skills which we hope will benefit their career paths going forward.
Have a good week.
