Mondays are nearly always the busiest day of my week, catching up from the weekend (life at the Farm Shop never stops – it’s open 7 days a week !) – so here are a few bits & pieces of Apley news:

The weekend was extra busy for Apley Farm Shop, having a stand at Shrewsbury Food Festival 27-28 June. Gavin spent half Saturday & all Sunday there & said it had gone very well & our products well received. Next, we’ll be at Newport Show on Saturday 11 July.

Tonight, 3 local artists have launched a beautiful exhibition, Secret Shropshire, in The Creamery Café to raise funds for the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund. All exhibits are for sale. Artists are photographer Jean Macdonald, Poet Marilyn Gaunt & artist Maureen Westerby. It runs until 3 October. I took this photo on Saturday evening as I was removing the photography competition entries (which are very soon available for collection from the Farm Shop office) & they were hanging their exhibition very professionally.

The Apley Cookery Club is coming up this Saturday 4 July, 10.30-12.30pm. It includes a buffet lunch, so book with Gilly Clayton – or 07837 83 58 54.

If you enjoy spicy food, come & enjoy some free tasters from Previns on Saturday 4 July in Apley Farm Shop. After that, I’m delighted to say Oak Apple Catering are coming on Saturday 18 July. Their cheese sables last about 30 mins in our home –disappearing especially fast if I’m around & very hungry !

There will be no craft fair on 5 July & 2 August. We’re holding them now on Sun 27 Sept (the day after our Harvest Food Festival), Sun 25 Oct (at the start of Spookley week) & Sun 29 Nov (the day after our Christmas Food Festival).
