Come along and get your fill!

See you there!

Radio Oxford


Listen out for The Pantry on Radio Oxford next week. They’re including a plug for our Spring Market in their events guide that will be broadcast twice a day throughout next week.

I can’t say I enjoyed faffing around with incomprehensible audio editing software or hearing the sound of my own voice wittering on, but if it encourages people to come along and see how lovely The Pantry is, then it’s been worth while. And it does mean I now know how to edit a sound file – sort of. Being a Pantry volunteer leads you into so many new areas!
