Calling all local craftspeople

At The Pantry we’d love to feature local craftspeople, but for some inexplicable reason we find it hard to attract them. There must be lots of people producing interesting work all around us, so this is a call to anyone in our neck of the woods who would like to take a stall at a future market, or who would like to supply some items for us to sell, to please get in touch. And if you know of anyone who might like to do so, but who may not have heard of us, please pass on the message.

More news about the Autumn Market soon. It’s starting to shape up nicely – especially if you are a connoisseur of locally produced ales and ciders!

Piddington Lazy Sunday

The Coffee Shop is one of the most popular features of The Pantry market, and people really do appreciate having a local place to get together over coffee and cake (or tea and a bacon bap) for a chat with friends and neighbours.

To tide us all over until the next market on 14 September, the catchily named Piddington Village Hall Management Committee (PVHMC) will be opening the Village Hall on 18 August for a Piddington Lazy Sunday. If coffee, croissants, the Sunday papers, chatting or just relaxing and letting the world go by in our lovely village sounds like your ideal Sunday morning, then why not stroll along from 10.30 am onwards – no need to rush.

If the papers are just too depressing, we’ll have our secondhand book stall, so you can escape with a romance or a thriller, or check with one of the gardening books there always seem to be so many of at The Pantry, to see what you should be doing instead.

We hope to have a mini Pantry stall, too, so you can take home a little something for later.

See you there!

Autumn Market – Change of date

Various summery events have meant I haven’t posted about The Pantry for a while, but that doesn’t mean the Pantry People aren’t all beavering away behind the scenes, getting the Autumn Market shipshape. (You can tell I’ve been to the seaside, can’t you?)

One important thing to note is that we’ve had to change the date of the next market because lots of us (organisers and volunteers) won’t be around on the date we originally set. So we’ve decided to move it to the following week.

The Autumn Market will now be held on 14 September, at the slightly later time of 10am – 2pm.

See you there!
