Magnolias blooming in Great Limber

Back to our website: Village Stores

When Jayne went out to the pub quiz last Thursday David grabbed a tin of magnolia emulsion and painted the walls of the office in Great Limber. No spills, but Jayne wasn't entirely enthusiastic about it when she returned. Belle-Belle thought it was great - she helped David, wagging her tail all the time. We still haven't managed to get the paint off her tail.

David’s nephew to run the London marathon

Back to our website: Village Stores

Today we received posters from David's nephew Sean. He is going to run in the London marathon on April 22nd 2012. Sean hopes to raise at least £2,000 for the Royal British Legion - a really worthwhile cause. We wish him all the best - if anyone would like to join us in sponsoring him, please get in touch.

Big freeze brings a power cut to Keelby and knocks out our till

Back to our website: Village Stores

Temperatures plummeted to minus 13 degrees centigrade on Friday night, and at about 3.00am on Saturday morning the power failed in Keelby. Limber was OK. When the power came back there must have been a surge that knocked out the new till at Keelby. All the other equipment was OK, so we put one of the computers on the counter, and used a spreadsheet to keep track of sales (one step up from writing everything by hand)! The till maintenance people only work Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm, so we'll get on to them then. Such fun!

First Snow of the Winter

Back to our website: Village Stores

First snow the Winter fell this weekend, but mercifully not as much as last year. We are selling loads of veg. - must be stew-time in Lincolnshire! And much to David's relief, we have even sold some of the sledges he bought last October.
