Christmas Message From Darrell and Maud at Number 12

Darrell at Number 12 Spaldwick

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our customers! With Christmas just around the corner and our festive fairs behind us, all our focus is now on the shop. We will be open on New Year’s Eve, and will be fully stocked with Prosecco and nibbles!

Firstly, a reminder that Christmas orders for turkeys, geese and ducks need to be with us by the 14th of December. Our birds are sourced from Franklins of Thorncotes, which were featured this year on the BBC’s Countrywise programme and Jamie Oliver’s new TV series with Jimmy Doherty. A link to the order sheet is given below:

It has been a busy year for us, with new products and services.

A highlight this year has been our belgian chocolates handmade by us at the deli. They are available in gift boxes of six or 12, with prices starting from £3.50. For the children, we have been making chocolate lollies.

Our local produce gift hamper orders are coming in thick and fast! They make an ideal present and can be tailor-made to suit you. Hampers start from just £5 plus the value of the selected products. Alternatively, we can select a range to suit your budget.

Also, this year we have created a new concept for a pop-up restaurant called The Secret Feast. So far, we have had great feedback and are looking to increase the number of events for next year. Details for upcoming feasts can be found on the Facebook page at the beginning of January:

This year has also been busy for us regarding our outside catering services, ranging from large-scale afternoon teas to company barbeques and finger buffets. We have already taken bookings for weddings, corporate and private parties for next year and welcome any enquiries.
