LATEST UPDATE (6 November 2019, about upcoming Village Greens, Friday 8 November)
The old dog is less and less keen to go out in bad weather, so last Saturday’s torrential downpour meant a lie in for him. He is less agile these days, and can no longer hop over the cattle grid when we set off on our walks. His feet are sort of spreading out and he’s been getting beech nuts stuck between his toes, leading to an emergency roadside pedicure on a few occasions. Despite the indignities of old age he is still good natured and placid, until he catches a whiff of rabbit, and takes off like a youngster. He will probably come a cropper one of these days, but he’s still having fun, if only all our elderly friends could say the same.
Lots to look forward to at the shop this week, including cabbage, calabrese, cauliflower and beetroot, we ate out at the weekend, and roasted beetroot featured on the menu, with mutton, it was delicious. We are making plans for our Christmas opening hours, the last full Village Greens with cafe will be on 13th Dec, and we’ll be open for a short time for collection of orders on 20th Dec, time to be confirmed.
Orders can be placed anytime for Christmas specials, including Ham, Pork Joints, Turkey, Chicken and Lamb plus all the usual fare, fruits, vegetables and dairy. There will also be baked goodies, Christmas Puddings and lots more, let us know what you would like.
