ISLIP VILLAGE SHOP REPORT FEB/MAR 2015
The shop is currently closed but we hope to re-open in the extended shop on March 7th, depending on the shopfitters, so watch out for the date of the Grand Opening!
Many thanks to the fantastic team of volunteers who packed up the shop, moved the contents & cleaned and stocked all the shelves in the Portacabin, and to Rectory Farm for the loan of numerous crates. It was not possible to move the chiller but Kate has kindly lent us a fridge to store the milk & drinks. Work is progressing well on the extension & the Committee are busy sorting out all the extra things that keep arising!
Christmas seems a long time ago but we hope that you were satisfied with all you ordered. Please let us know of any way that we can offer a better service for next Christmas. Local cheese again proved extremely popular with orders in excess of £600. We stock them all year round so do place an order for any you would like.
Bartlett's are providing us with a very satisfactory service at a very competitive price. They kindly give us a discount so that you pay the same as if you went to their shop. They have packs of chicken fillets, pork steaks (both plain and marinated), rump steaks, burgers and other packs at £3.99 per pack or 3 for £10.00. They will deliver any day of the week, so do place your orders, thus supporting us, and saving on petrol & time.
Get ready for Fairtrade Fortnight from 23rd February to 8th March. This year is Fairtrade Foundations 20th Anniversary. Buy Fairtrade and show your support for farmers and producers around the world. So many products now available.
Sacks of Rectory Farm potatoes, reds or whites, are available in 2 sizes, 12.5 kg & 25kg. We sell them loose as well at only 60p per kilo.
We are looking forward to having Jim Hobson back as a weekend volunteer. If there any more of you out there, who think you could spare the odd hour, please do contact me. We welcome all.
Please send orders to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01865 375715 during opening hours.
We value your support and feedback, Maralynn & the Committee.
