It's the start of our new financial year!

Back to our website: Village Stores

The last Saturday in April marks the end of our financial year, so things are getting busy behind the scenes. We have just moved our payroll onto the new Real Time Reporting regime the tax authorities have set up, and David is just about to get the new year's budget done and do the accounts. We did a full stock take at the end of March to ease the load - we have spreadsheets that will help us "roll forward" the stock figures to the end of April. Still lots of work though - all those hand-written sheets need valuing. Phew!

Turners Sausages go with a bang!

Back to our website: Village Stores

We are selling more Turner's traditional Lincolnshire sausages than ever before! One chap buys £15 each time. We love them ourselves - Jayne has her own speciality: a "deconstructed" toad in the hole. You'll have to ask her all about it!

Spring at last!

Back to our website: Village Stores

Hey folks, the weather has finally warmed up (up to normal, that is!) and our ice-cream chiller has emerged from hibernation. Don't miss the "Gas Band" concert at the Keelby Village Hall on 20th April - it's going to be a grand night!

Grand National is on Today

Back to our website: Village Stores

There's no neigh-saying the fact that today Saturday 6th April is Grand National Day. We've been selling loads of racing papers, and folks are running sweepstakes all over the place! Just don't lose your shirts! Best of Luck!

David's special assistant on April 1st

Back to our website: Village Stores

Easter was early this year - Good Friday fell on March 29th. This meant Easter Monday was also April 1st. On this day David got a special assistant for 1 day only - an Ape called Rilfool, who served on the counter at the Keelby shop until 12.00 midday. Some people think it may just have been David dressed in a gorilla suit....
