Father’s Day at Apley Farm Shop

2015-06-10, Fathers day posterEvery year, Father’s Day seems to appear out of the blue & I always wonder how on earth we’re (more specifically the children !) are going to celebrate the day & thank Gavin for being a great Dad to them all. I love Midsummer’s Day (best day of the year, being rather a sun-seeker) & this year lots of friends are attending Waterloo re-enactments on 20 June – marking 200 years since 1815 – so close to the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta too. I know Brussels will be heaving with Waterloo-ers. A friend there told me anyone would have thought Napoleon won, as there’s hardly a mention of Wellington !

At Apley Farm Shop, especially for Fathers’ Day, The Creamery Café’s ever popular roast Sunday lunch will cost £29.99 for two courses for 2 adults & 2 children, with a free Apley Ale for Dad, made locally by Hobsons Brewery of Shropshire & a special Shropshire cheese board on offer (including Apley’s own Cheshire cheese of course !).

If you’d rather spend Father’s Day at home, but need your meat, our Apley butcher will tailor-make a tray of barbecue meats especially for you. Select your favourites from the 8 different varieties of sausage on offer, add in some Apley lamb koftas, ‎Apley steaks or Apley beefburgers. It’s just for you – totally bespoke. Apley BBQ 4 U ! Finish off with English strawberries – we have a special offer (2 punnets & get your cream half price).

In the meantime, as we prepare for Sunday, we’ve been getting lots of calls from classic car owners about our Classic Car Sunday on 19 July which will no doubt be another great day for the men. Fingers crossed it’ll be a sunny day like last year ! Here’s some lovely feedback from 2014:

We just wanted you all to know what an enjoyable day we spent at Apley Park yesterday.  Everyone was so friendly and we were made to feel really welcome. What a lovely idea it was to supply Bacon Sandwiches to the classic car exhibitors. Lord Hamilton spent quite a while chatting to each exhibitor which was much appreciated. Everyone we spoke to said what a good day it had been and how much they had enjoyed the interest shown to their ‘pride & joy’! It’s a boys & toys thing, which we women don’t seem to understand. It was an outstanding success for you all and hopefully will become an annual event. We got a puncture about 15 miles from home, by then the rain was coming down by the bucketful, my poor husband got soaked to the skin changing the wheel, it did rather spoil the end to a lovely day, but that’s motoring and anyone can get a puncture regardless of the age of the car … Thank you for inviting us to bring our car along.”
