You cannot but have noticed the adornments being made to the village ahead of this weekend's Remembrance commemorations. Now the war memorial has been graced by its own motif, in the style of the well dressings, painstakingly assembled. And from Saturday 6pm til 11pm, the plan is to have images of World War 1 and its times projected onto the eastern end of St Matthews Church. This all promises to make this centennial commemoration of the end of fighting in WWI rather special.
We're also delighted to confirm that the promised new service, of a pop up artisan baker and a high quality fruiterer and greengrocer, will make its first appearance outside the Pack Horse pub next weekend, Saturday November 17th, 10.00-12.00 noon, courtesy of our colleagues Grains from Glossop and Village Greens from Charlesworth. Please note that, for logistical reasons, the date has been moved from Friday, as originally notified, to Saturday, and every Saturday thereafter. You may have already received, or will receive, an information leaflet about the new village facility through your door advertising the service. And it looks lovely! This means you'll have direct access to mouthwatering breads and wholesome, healthy fresh veg, all on your doorstep. We're delighted these two very successful businesses have chosen to branch out to Hayfield village, where we're sure they'll be assured of a warm welcome. We hope you'll go along and sample the delights on offer.
You'll note that Village Greens are emphasising their £10 and £20 'veg boxes', orders for which can be made - by next Thursday - by phone (01457 852456), and then be ready for collection. But, if you're not ready to commit to that in advance, they'll also have other supplies for you to buy on the day. Here's hoping this joint enterprise by Grains and Village Greens will be an attractive and sustainable addition to Hayfield's 'retail offer' (as they say)!
Back to memories.........do you recall reel to reel recorders? Might you still have one? If so, might you loan it temporarily to Sustainable Hayfield supporter Keith Brisley, who's wanting to retrieve something from a reel to reel tape? He'd be delighted - and very grateful - if you would. Keith's on 01663 749807 and at email@example.com. Thanks!
And thanks for your continuing support and interest.
