Apples update 15/10/20

There is now the widest variety of apples available that we will have this year. Saturday will be buzzing here as there is a free to enter Dress 4 Less event in The Woodpecker (11-5pm) where there will be a very wide selection of clothes (sizes 8-50) and accessories – some new and others good quality pre loved. This event is raising money to plant daffodil bulbs in surrounding villages There will also be second hand books for sale, raising money for White Ladies Aston Church. So, if you’re thinking of visiting us for apples in the near future, Saturday would be a good day to come. We’ll be open 9 – 6pm.
