The Royal Wedding

Back to our website: Village Stores

We all had a great time on Friday 29th April - the day Prince William married Catherine Middleton. Both shops were filled with bunting and flags, and we arranged a rota so we could also get to the party being held in Limber Village Hall. The party was well attended, and Jayne was interviewed by BBC TV

Happy Easter to all our Friends!

The weather this week has been wonderful - warm, bright sunshine and no hint of rain. Lots of people have been buying Roes Dairy ice-cream from our new fridge at Keelby. On Friday we got our first local asparagus of the season - very early this year. Let’s hope the good weather continues for the Royal Wedding - on Friday 29th of April. There are parties at the Village Hall at Great Limber, and also at St Bartholomews Church Rooms in Keelby - do come along with a plate of food, and watch the wedding.

Mr Hughie Durkin - passed away

We were sad to learn yesterday that Hughie Durkin passed away, after a short illness. Hughie was quite a character, and enjoyed a drink. By trade he was a roofer, but in the 80s he and his wife Rhona built and ran the shop we now own at Keelby.

Organ Concert - Keelby Village Hall

Just back from a wonderful evening - songs from the shows played on a Wurlitzer style organ at Keelby Village Hall. Everyone is so lucky that there are dedicated people who can put on such events. Bravo! Jayne won a bottle of wine in the raffle, too!

New Ice-cream Fridge for Keelby

In the depths of the snow last December, our ice-cream fridge went bonkers and melted all our ice-cream. Since then we've been trying to get it fixed, but it contains a special refrigerant, and the only engineers who would do it come from Burnley. So we're getting a new one - it should arrive on Monday 11th April.

Trouble with cards

Back to our website: Village Stores

Last week our Keelby Switch machine refused to recognise our phone line, so a new one came out to us on Saturday morning. The new one wouldn't work either, so David tried plugging into different phone sockets, and eventually asked BT to boost the voltage on the phone line. Nothing worked, so he tried the new machine at Limber, proving the new machine was faulty. We are now awaiting a replacement for the replacement! We hope to do phone top-ups and payment by cards very soon - thanks for your patience!
