What a wonderful August we have had in the shop serving you all, plus many customers who have travelled from further afield. I have had the opportunity to meet lots of amazing people with the furthest coming from Christchurch, New Zealand who told me the temperature there was a chilly 7 degrees, very different to what we have been experiencing!
It was National Cream tea week during the second week of the month and what better reason to promote our first cream tea to be served in the café. We invited four of our very special customers, Alan, Una, Gillian and Sheila (right) to be our taste testers. The scone is served warm with Cornish clotted cream and raspberry jam and thankfully all expressed how delicious it was, even asking for seconds.
We have also been serving iced coffee with either a caramel or vanilla shot, perfect for these warm days.
We would like to congratulate some of our younger volunteers, Georgia, Barney and Daniel on their fantastic achievements with their A-level and AS exam results. Everyone at Bledington Shop would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work volunteering and wish you all the success on your new adventures. If you know a young person who would like to volunteer for their Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, please do get in touch.
Fresh figs, nectarines and peaches are selling fast and with September soon arriving why not buy some delicious cooking apples to go with the arrival of blackberries, arriving on a hedgerow near you soon.
We look forward to welcoming you.
