Partial Solar Eclipse

We've had some really windy weather in March - right at the beginning, and then again at the end! All of this and a partial eclipse too - quite an eventful month! David constructed a pinhole camera from a crisp box, and shone an image of the eclipse onto a sheet of paper for the girls who work at the hairdressers next door!

Dijon Mustard Now in Stock

English mustard is strongly flavoured. In the 70s Colemans made a milder type they called French mustard but the EU banned it, as it wasn't French. Mustard is made in France at Dijon and Meaux, but normally from Canadian seed. American mustard, invented by G.J. French, is milder (as turmeric is added) & is known as "yellow mustard" in the USA (to distinguish it from other mustards which are also yellow). It is also normally made from Canadian seed. It's all rather confusing!!!!

Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday this week was really busy - we had some great value chocs and cakes, and a big range of special cards, too! We're always surprised at how many cards we actually sell on Sunday - some people really do leave it all to the last minute!

More sad news!

Back to our website: Village Stores

It seems barely a week passes before we hear of another funeral. We learned on Thursday that Brian Vickers had passed away, after a long battle with cancer. Brian and his wife were very popular landlords at the New Inn, Great Limber in 2005. Brian will be sadly missed!
