Happy New Year! We hope you all had a great break.

If your 2017 resolutions involve eating more healthily or getting more involved in your local community then we are here to help! The shop and cafe is back open again since Tuesday – 9.30am-6.30pm, every weekday. If you would like to get involved in volunteering – on Saturdays or in the week – just drop a line to Abi on contacts.talkingshop@gmail.com. The market is back too this Saturday with a great range of local, organic vegetables. You really can taste the difference from supermarket veg so do give them a try if you’ve not before.

A chat in the shop today suggested that there is enthusiasm to get the village quiz going again this year. There used to be a monthly quiz for which Richard Butler did a brilliant job as quizmaster. If you would like to help get this running again – maybe joining a team to come up with quiz questions – again drop an email to Abi as above.
