Badingham Shop & Café
During the last couple of months we have held a number of events in the Shop & Café which were very well supported.
The afternoon tea held in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support was a fabulous event resulting in over £320 being raised for the charity.
The pre-Christmas craft fair was held at the beginning of November and a great time was had by all. We attracted a large number of local crafts people to display their wares. Sonja organised a very successful raffle and Rebecca served delicious refreshments. The torrential rain did not stop the enthusiasm of local Badingham residents and an amazing £850 was taken during the afternoon – thank you to all who supported the event.
We won’t have a specific crafter of the month during December, we will continue to display a wide range of local crafts and Christmas cards; if you are looking for inspiration and something a little different, come and visit us. We can also make hampers up for you comprising your favourite items from the shop or, if you’d like recipients of your gifts to make their own selection from the shop or café, we are selling gift tokens in £5, £10 or £20 denominations – several already sold!
We would also like to give special thanks to the BCC for their generous donation to the Shop & Café, with which we have bought a soup kettle, ladle, probe thermometer and a milk warmer/frother!!
We have started to serve our winter menu – panini still on offer alongside tasty homemade soup and a rotating special including quiche, bagels, flatbreads and toasted sandwiches.
A reminder that opening times are 11:00 to 13:00, Monday to Friday and the 1st Sunday of each month. We close for Christmas on Tuesday 20 December, reopening on Tuesday 3 January 2017.
Tuesday Tots - 11:30 to 12:00. Tasty treats for tots (£1.50 per child) and any accompanying parent receives a free drink.
Wednesday Walks - The Badingham walking group, which is open to all, leaves from the shop at 10:00 for an hour’s stroll around the village (weather permitting), finishing back at the shop.
