The Original Factory Shop Fundraiser for In Sams Name

Saturday saw Denise attend this local community event to support this great cause organised by the team at The Original Factory Shop (Ollerton). The weather was definitely not playing along on the day as we endured sunshine, rain, hailstones then sunshine again. But the enthusiasm was there from everyone involved and the children loved the giant rabbit. We always like the opportunity to meet up with our loyal customers to thank them for their continued support over the last 30+ years. Watch this space for more events in the upcoming months.

Harpenden Farmers Market

On Sunday Chris served at the Harpenden Farmers market. Although the wind was a problem, the sun came out which is traditionally a cue for Harpenden to turn out in force. We had a busier than usual day as a result, so thank you to everyone for their continued support. The next market date for Harpenden is 28th April 2024, hopefully the weather will have warmed up a touch.
