March certainly arrived like a lion, we have had some very cold and snowy days. Lets hope it goes out like a lamb and that the longer days and the gorgeous Spring bulbs means that Spring is finally here. Have you seen the Spring bulbs and flowers that we have planted up just outside the entrance to the shop?
We have been celebrating a few national food weeks, with “Real Bread Week” championing our amazing local supplier Marks Cotswold Bakery a 5 star award winning bread maker. We then had national “Pie Week” again promoting another local supplier the Outdoor Pig Company who make all our delicious pork pies, quiches and traditional pasties.
Last Sunday was Mothers Day so a big thank you to all our amazing mums, mothers, grannies and grandmothers who live in our village. I hope you were able to spend some time and say thank you for everything that they do for you. I know if it wasn’t for my amazing Mother I would not be the person I am today, so thank you Mum.
We will soon be celebrating Easter. We have an amazing choice of cards, gifts and of course chocolate so please pop in and pick up some chocolatey treats.
Finally I am proud and delighted that the very talented Amy Jackson has personally designed for us our very own Bledington Tea Towel. As you may know Amy designed the labels for our Old Orchard Bledington Gin and Sloe Gin. She also designs the Bledington Christmas card for us. The tea towel which features the ducks which live on the village green comes in 3 colours, cream, mustard or sage green. So why not pop into the shop and purchase your very own Bledington Tea Towel. Many thanks Amy for all your hard work and attention to detail; they look incredible.
