More Treats On Offer...

Further to recent posts, here's few other things to look out for:
  1. A reminder that Grains Bakehouse (01457 862346) and Village Greens (01457 852456) will be outside the Pack Horse again this Saturday, 10-12.00p.m. with their delicious produce. Village Greens advise they've had a great response of orders for their £10 veg box and a good number of orders for their £5 'veg essentials' bags. They're also bringing along some select cheeses, fresh cranberries and a selection of natural Xmas wreaths for sale on the day. If you want to be sure you get what you want, why not order direct from either supplier, and collect on the day?
  2. News that should appeal: a new zero waste shop has just opened in Buxton - Day Zero! Based at 30 High Street in Higher Buxton, it was opened by Ruth George MP on Saturday and is open through the day pretty much every day (save the obvious) this month and even 12-4.00p.m. Sundays. They have a full range of wholefoods, liquid refills and gifts on offer. Being zero waste, they hope you'll bring containers for your purchases but they also have free recycled paper bags and they can sell jars, made from recycled glass. They've a Facebook page ( and will have a website They've apparently got off to a great start and would be delighted to see Sustainable Hayfield supporters at their premises.

And there's a light-hearted quiz, complete with mulled wine and mince pies. £3 to all;
  4. Closer to home, and exactly a week after the switch on Hayfield's own Xmas lights, Little Hayfield is hosting its own Xmas Tree Light Switch On and get-together, on Friday 14th December, at 7.00p.m., in the park area down Slack Lane. This will be accompanied by Chapel Band and traditional carols followed by mince pies and mulled wine in the Lantern Pike. So, wet weather or dry, there's an evening to be made of it as the local community comes together.
