Overwhelmed by aubergines? Can’t face another courgette?

The Pantry can help!

We welcome donations of surplus vegetables from all you green-fingered gardeners out there, as we can sell them on the General Store. If you have anything suitable, please bring it along to the village hall next Saturday morning before the market begins. There’ll be people around from 9.00am.

We’ve talked for a long time about how lovely it would be to offer villagers’ produce to fellow villagers, but the markets so far have never been at quite the right time. Now, however, the action on the vegetable plot can get a bit fast and furious, so we hope people will be encouraged to donate some of their summer glut to help village funds.

We’ve posted the notice below around the village – strategically, on the allotment gates! – but please pass on the message to people who might not hear about it otherwise.

The Pantry have decided to donate 50% of the profits of the Summer Market towards the purchase of a defibrillator for the village. So your surplus produce might even help to save a life someday.
