Hello everyone,

I finally have some exciting news about the Post Office. We are hoping to open for business on 4th July! Catherine Field has joined us as a Shop As-sistant with Post Office duties and you’ll find her behind the Post Office counter between 8am and 1pm Monday to Friday. We are still looking to hire another person to job share with Catherine – please see the separate advert for more information.

We’ll soon start on the layout changes to accommodate the new Post Office counter. Please bear with us while this work is ongoing as there may be some disruptions while we take the old fortress down.

It was great to see everyone at the May fete last month. I hope you all enjoyed our wine tasting stand. We were tasting three new great value wines:

  • Italia Prosecco Spumante Brut NV – “Citrus and green apple aromas, with hints of stone fruit. The palate has more delicate citrus and grapey notes with zesty acidity and a soft and appealing finish”
  • Il Traliccio Trebbiano – “A fresh and bright white with citrus and green apple characters and crisp acidity. Enjoy with chicken, pasta with pesto, and seafood”
  • Il Traliccio Sangiovese – “Bright, fruity aromas, and appealing cherry and damson characters on the palate. This is light and easy drinking with soft tannins and a juicy finish. A good match for classic Italian tomato-based dishes – pizza and pasta”

With Best Wishes from Gary and all the staff, volunteers, and Shop Committee members.
