Hello….

This is my first ever blog and hope you like it!

It’s been a busy week here at Harpers. Especially as the Craft & Gift Fair is tomorrow. The marquee goes is up and the stall holders have moved in ready for 3 very busy days. I don’t know how Debbie manages to organise it as she does. If you, family and friends would like to come you all would be very welcome. There is no admission charge only we will encourage you to buy raffle tickets to support the MacMillan Cancer Team. Listening over the years to our customers there isn’t any family that hasn’t been affected and perhaps needed these peoples help.

Kay is taking bookings for table service in The Oak Room for lunches. Abi and the team in the Coffee Shop will busy making sure there is plenty of choice of cakes, scones, hot and cold food as well as the NEW range of filled paninis and pasties.
I love my job as our family have to try everything we offer because if it’s not good enough for us we wouldn’t expect our customers to buy it. Only problem is I shall never be “thin”!!
At home in Suffolk my husband Chris has finished harvest and busy now cultivating the fields in preparation for next years’ crop. He brought home some wonderful cooking apples which I made apple sauce to go with the boned loin of pork roast I took home to cook on Sunday. It was so good we ate it all!

I always have sausage rolls in my freezer because you never know who is going to turn up….usually our grandson who loves them. So easy to cook, Jane has them available in many flavours in the shop and launching NEW we are delivering them in boxes of 12 so please ask for details We also have an Autumn food pack which is only £30.00 with 5 meals as well as 2 desserts in which is available in the shop or to order.

Hopefully I shall get the chance to see as many of you over the coming week and at the Fair, but for now….

Signing off till next time….. Judy
