Hello and welcome to our brand new Village Green blog!
Unbelievably we are going into our 5th year - the past 4 have flown past and I have been blessed with great support from my family, colleagues, suppliers and of course our customers.
Village Green has evolved because of the hard work and collaboration of so many people and that collaboration has been the greatest joy of being self-employed - from Colin who has become our unoffical gardener to Kate who has just re-designed our website, Rachel who keeps my crafting bug alive through our Woolly Wednesday collaboration, and the enthusiasm of our foodie suppliers which is infectious. The biggest thanks goes to my cafe team for their support, hard work and sense of humour!
If you find the time to take a peek at our new-look website you will see you can now order our cakes/savouries on-line for collection from the cafe. Our seasonal favourite like beef chilli, sweet potato stew or lentil dhal have been available as frozen take-away packs for some time and we are expanding the range - great when you’ve no time to cook! For family size dishes (serving 4, 6 or multiples of those) just order in advance via the website. We also have lovely bread deliveries Monday to Saturday - call in or telephone the cafe to order your bread.
Our Woolly Wednesday group has moved to term-time blocks so it’s easier to plan, but all are welcome on a drop-in basis for tea, cake & creativity. The Autumn block will run on 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th November. Crochet & knitting support is on-hand from Rachel Smith who always inspires us with her beautiful makes. It’s a treat to spend a couple of hours a week with a diverse group of women, laughing, chatting, making.
Coming up to Christmas(!) we have a lovely special offer too - every purchase over £25 on gifts and cards in November will qualify for a mystery- prize envelope valid on purchases in December and January. We will be having some lovely new gift items in over the coming weeks - gorgeous Turtle Doves Cashmere, St Eval candles & foodie treats.
Thank you for taking the time to catch up on our exciting new season ahead... we hope to see you soon! Sara & team x
