English Wine Week

English Wine Week

English wine week starts officially Saturday the 20th to 28th June 2020, however for some it's a bit like the queens birthday as it was meant to be earlier in the year so if you've celebrated it twice, then there won't be any complaints from us!

If you haven't sampled English wine before then wine not give it a go? From traditional grape to a range of fruits, red, white, rose and sparkling too, if you like wine then you should be able to find one from these that's a great match too.

Help save St John's Preschool

Help save St John's Preschool

St John's Pre School in Macclesfield has started a fund to raise money for the survival of the pre school which has unfortunately been left in a precarious situation due to Covid 19 and the lack of available support.

As a pre school that is very close to us through both family and friends, we are keen to do what we can to assist. Therefore we have added some additional incentives to help promote the fund and encourage support.
