Royal Wedding Shop

If you fancy doing a bit crafting once 'that' wedding is all over, we are open as usual.

We don't have any wedding cake but we do have lots of great products at a good price, so why not pop down and celebrate with a bit crafting

Wednesday, 27 April 2011


We've got a new shop opened just along from us, the Butcher's Bakery. They do the most amazing cakes, and to keep it a balanced diet, they do a nice range of filled rolls, pies, sausage rolls etc.

Or if you prefer to make your own they have a great range of fresh meats, sausages etc, all locally sourced. 

If you're needing something for lunch at work, or just fancy a treat, why not pop in and see. They're open from 6.30 a.m. till 6.00 p.m.

Every card maker has a man in their life – whether a husband, a father, a brother a grandfather or a friend.
