The Mower Man – Passing of an Era

Many of John Baker’s “loyal and entertaining customers” took up his invitation to a pie and a pint at River Lane on Saturday 11 August to celebrate his over 50 year’s service to the village, and well beyond.  Some were even observed to have more than one pint, while staying for the pasties (specially imported fresh from the West Country!) was well worth it. 

Those not keen on mending their own garden machinery need have no fear – John will be reincarnated at new premises at Foxcotte Farm, Comberton Road, Barton, CB237BA, from early September, where the same mix of engineering skills and philosophical discussion will continue to be available.
