Tasting Evenings

As part of the Lottery Funded Local Food Development and Outreach Programme we will be running three tasting evenings in Woodgreen Village Hall. In preparation for the opening of the new shop, we plan to arrange a series of three evenings in the village hall, to try out new products and hopefully, get ideas from you, our valued customers. They will be staged in January, February and March, and each one will feature new products that we hope will tickle your taste buds!

The first evening will be staged on Friday 21st January from 7.00 to 9.00 pm. At this event we plan to present you with more delicious new cheeses, chutneys and savoury pies, most will be locally sourced. In order to make it a good evening on a possibly cold winter’s night, we plan to run a bar, and hope that all our shareholders and any stray relatives or friends who happen to be with you at the time, will join us.

The other two events will be staged on Friday 18th February and Friday 19th March, so please put these dates in your diary for next year. These events will be your last chance to tell us what you would like to see in the new shop. Make the most of them and see you there!!

A Reminder about Wessex Petroleum

If you choose to purchase oil from Wessex Petroleum (freephone 0800 980 6172), please quote reference number D93 to gain a more competitive rate for yourself and to benefit our shop funds.

For sometime now, the shop has been one of the community interest projects supported by Wessex Petroleum. Wessex donate to our funds ½ p per litre for each order of domestic heating oil where the customer quotes our reference number (that equates to £5 on a 1000 litre order, so you can see how that soon adds up). We receive quarterly payments from Wessex Petroleum through this scheme which all goes into that big fundraising pot.

Many thanks to those of you who already have done so.
