Your Suggestions Please

Following a review of our business, one of the things we are considering is increasing our frozen food range by adding another freezer, thus increasing our frozen food capacity by 50%.

If we are to do that, we need your suggestions as to the kind of products you would like us to hold.

Apart from our own range of ready meals, we currently have thin & crispy pizzas, fish fingers, prawns, chips, peas, chicken nuggets and dippers, beefburgers, potato waffles, pastry, garlic bread & St. George Gelato ice cream.

Please email your suggestions to cuddingtonstores@hotmail.co.uk or let us know your ideas when you next visit the shop.

Thank you

The price per litre for the December order was 36.85p plus VAT, a saving of up to £230.50 for an order of 1,000 litres*.  This is the lowest buy price for the entire time that the scheme has been running and reflects the steep drop in crude oil prices.

River Thame at Nether Winchendon 

Save The River Thame Update

Save The River Thame had some great coverage on Page 2 of the Bucks Herald last week, here's the link:

http://www.bucksherald.co.uk/news/more-news/we-re-saving-the-river-thame-for-future-generations-1-6443227

We've done quite well with the media, who have been very supportive , and this is resulting in a greater awareness of the river and its problems across Aylesbury Vale. The Working Group, had their second meeting on Dec 8th and have a plans to develop activities over the coming months and years and achieve real improvements to the river environment and wildlife.

We are looking into creating a web portal that will give an oversight of the initiatives, water testing and problems across the entire Thame catchment in order to keep people more informed about their river and, hopefully, to engage the attention and involve more of the community.

Save The River Thame has made a good start on testing the water for pollutants, but does need more people to help with this and other monitoring activities, so please do forward this to anyone whom you think might be interested. Our email is now riverthame1@gmail.com.
