Country Kitchen Sunday opening hours

From this Sunday, Country Kitchen are going to open from 10:30 until 14:00. This could work quite well because the other shop is open early and closes early as well, so this should cover a few more hours on a Sunday between both shops. Keep an eye out for the xmas display area coming (too?) soon!

Pies, Pies and Sausage rolls

Country Kitchen HalloweenCountry Kitchen has now been trading for six months and we’re still honing our product lines and growing our customer base. But one thing we do know for sure is that our best seller by a million miles are our sausage rolls, which we make on-site, followed closely by pies and then our quiches and other food cooked on-site.

Apple Saturday at Country Kitchen

apple dayHave you got masses of apples and at a loss as to what to do with them? Bring them along to Country Kitchen on Saturday the 5th October from 10h00 – 13h00. We’ll pulp them and press them (you and the kids can join in too!), and all you have to do is collect lovely, fresh apple juice to take home and enjoy. Please remember to bring your own containers in which to collect the juice!

Village Post Office Closure?

P1030564It’s good to report that recent concerns about potential closure of the local post office have gone away for the time being.     A Village Resident wrote about the problem to MP Andrew Lansley and this is the gist of his reply. “I am writing to advise that further to my letter dated 7th June, I have now received a response from the Post Office Ltd to the enquiry I made on your behalf regarding any changes to Haslingfield Post Office.  The Post Office have advised that they are not currently aware of any plans to change the way that Haslingfield Post Office is operated. They have offered their assurances that the local community would be notified if there were any plans to change this.  Post Office Ltd have also informed me that changes through the national three year investment programme are being implemented on a voluntary basis and consequently, no subpostmaster would be forced to convert to a new operating model unless they wished to do so”.   Many thanks to ‘Village Resident’
