Christmas Carols at the Hub

The Hub’n’pub event on 4 December  was a huge success – 200 people turned out to hear Broad Chalke Choir and to sing  Christmas carols around the tree followed by mince pies and mulled wine at the Queen’s Head.

A very Happy Christmas to all our volunteers and customers.

December News Update

Hub and Pub Evening

Many thanks to all who came last Thursday to the inaugural Hub and Pub evening. The Christmas tree lights were switched on and the tree now looks wonderfully festive outside the shop. The choir from Broad Chalke choir sang beautifully, and everyone joined in with the traditional carols, followed by mulled wine and mince pies at the Queen’s Head. It was a very jolly evening. Special thanks go to the choir, the pub and all who organised it.’

 Christmas Orders

Please put in your orders for Christmas food. Although the deadline for turkey and goose has now passed you can still order other meat and also Christmas vegetables.

 Christmas Produce Stall

Do come and see the lovely, locally made produce on the Christmas stall inside the coffee shop. There are beautiful hand made gifts that would make perfect stocking fillers or unique presents.

 Christmas at the Coffee Shop

Why not take a break from frantic christmas preparations and come and have a cup of coffee and delicious home made cakes and mince pies at the coffee shop?
