We’re busy getting our show diary finalised for this year.
Our great pals at Reads Coffee Roasters, www.readscoffee.co.uk, are organising a fundraiser for the Haiti Disaster- ‘Hearts for Haiti’. It promises to be a foodie extravaganza with lots of local artisan producers selling their goodies. It’s on Saturday, 13th February, 10am -3 pm & held in the Theare at Sherborne boys school.
It would be lovely if as many people as possible could come along-the aim is to celebrate gorgeous, hand-crafted local foods & to raise lots of cash for such a pressing cause. For info pls call Charlotte t Reads-01935 389615.We’ll e there with lots of samples to taste too. No obligation to buy- but e are after your money- we’re on a mission to raise lots!
This next week we will be exhibiting with our wholesaler at the Devon Expo West trade show-if you are going- please do pop by and say hello. We’ll have goody bags to give away-as long as they last!
It’s always tricksy judging how many shows to do in a year.We had aimed to cut down in 2010, but somehow the number keeps creeping up again.They do soak up resources but also I think it’s very important to keep on promoting the brand-as soon as we set a limit we’re then sent details of another how & it’s all so tempting to’give it a go’
Note to Self- don’t get carried away with too many shows- we need to watch the pennies in order to be able to spend on all the fun stuff! We’d love more trees, hedging, nature cams & various bits & bobs for the new Bee Shack garden..so we need to start saying no to some of the bigger,costlier events.
Speaking of all things green, Charlotte & Graham have now started their hedgelaying & it looks terrific. One of the many benefits is that a laid hedge offers improved nesting opportunities for our precious wild birds. Have a lookie on www.honeybuns.co.uk/blogbeegreen & you’ll find Charlotte is a very busy greenbee!
Righteyho- that’s all for now.Keep cosy,
