Autumn has arrived and our countryside is ablaze with colour, the trees are slowing shedding their leaves and the nights are slowly drawing in. October in the shop has seen the arrival of lots of new and very tempting products. In our frozen section we have some delicious new fishcakes from salmon, lemon and dill to smoked haddock. We have some very early brussels sprouts and kale in, easy to cook and very tasty with a warming and hearty stew.
I am delighted to announce we have a new local homemade cake supplier, Holli Thomas, who owns Little Sprinkles Cakes. We are delighted to serve her mouth-watering cakes in our café with lots of amazing choices to enjoy, from Red Velvet to a Vegan Chocolate Cake – which one will you try! Any slice would be a perfect accompaniment with a freshly ground Stow Coffee or hot chocolate served with cream and marshmallows.
Following the generosity of our customers over the last few months our Chairman Graeme handed over a cheque to Wendy Scott, joint editor of Bledington News to help towards the costs.
All of us at Bledington Shop appreciate what a vital role Bledington News magazine plays in the community, keeping us all up to date with the goings on within our community.
Thank you, Sinclair and Wendy, for all your hard work.
