Well, it’s Summer time and the living is steamy! What seems like weeks of hot dry weather has left the gardens of Thurlton a tiny bit arid.

However, the new chiller and freezer in the shop are stuffed with cooling drinks and ice-creams! We are even trying to keep salad items for the cold meat platter (some lovely home grown cucumbers!)

We are still trying to purchase the shop and need more people to become members so we can apply for grants. A membership “share” costs just £10 and can be obtained by filling in the form in the shop and handing over a tenner. Do it if you can, the villages need a shop.
