Here is some interesting news for wine lovers. Simpson’s wine Estate is launching 2 new wines on November 1st – Canterbury Rose 2017 (a traditional method sparkling rose wine) and Roman Road 2018 (a chardonnay).  All will be welcome at the launch, which will take place at Barham Village Store between 7pm and 8.30pm on Friday November 1st.


At last we have a new cake supplier. The Pantry 100, based just outside Bridge, is already providing the shop with cakes and will soon be adding some pasta salads, lasagne, cottage pies, Scotch eggs and fresh fruit pies. They may even be on the shelves by the time you read this. Just right for winter tea time…



If you are having or going to a bonfire on November 5th, you can buy your snacks, potatoes, sweets, fizzy drinks and beer all in one go from the shop. No need to go anywhere else, keep it local!


Finally, sorry to mention Christmas so early, but the Christmas stamps from the Post Office will go on sale on November 5th, and you can also pick up a leaflet giving the last posting dates. Enjoy the autumn leaves and some cozy evenings by the fire during November before giving Christmas too much thought, though.

Beat the festive rush and get all your letters and parcels in the post on time.
