Good evening,


Firstly thanks to all of you who came to the Hotel this weekend to visit the market. We are back in our usual spot at the village hall on Saturday 8.30 – 12.00, Bacon Baps back on the menu!


As always you can order your bread, meat, fish and cheese ahead of time and pick it up on the day. Attached is the comprehensive order list. Please send all orders to this email address which is by the end of Tuesday.

Fish prices are still as follows:

Cod £17.95/kg
Prawns £15.25/kg
Mixed Fish Diced Medley £16.50/kg
Smoked Haddock £17.95/kg
Mackerel £13.25/kg
Mussels £5.95/kg
Plaice £10.95/kg
Plaice Fillets £13.75/kg
Pollock £17.99/kg
Salmon £19.95/kg
Trout £8.95/kg
Trout Fillets £16.25/kg

Also available to order are fishcakes – these are frozen and come in either packs of 4 whitefish at £2.08 or 6 Salmon at £3.40.


On Tuesday August the 2nd there will be a public meeting to discuss the shop. Doors will open a 7.30 and we are aiming to start at 7.45 and finish at 9.00. Alongside the presentation of the Treasurers report will be the opportunity to discuss the produce, ideas for development and the volunteer approach.  Tea and coffee will be available alongside homemade cookies. So please come along as we would love to hear from you.


Until recently orders and contacts were made to individual email addresses. Unfortunately this causes a problem if the recipient is away and we do not want to miss information. Hence we have taken our brand, Talking Shop, and created a central email which we can all access. This means that you can be rest assured or your email being received, read and responded to.

I won’t be there on Saturday as I will be wishing my partner, Sam, a fond farewell as he starts his year long sailing race. Abi is still on holiday so Jacky and Rebecca will be managing the market. Please don’t hesitate to speak to them if you want to know more about the project, wish to know how to place an order, would like to volunteer or want to order something particular which is not currently on the order list.

Many thanks
