Thank you to Jeanne, Middleton Hall resident who officially opened The Stables Shop by cutting the ribbon today.
The shop, built in the space that was previously the kitchen and once upon a time The Stables, is very much open for business. It stocks what residents have told us they want to buy – convenience goods such as milk and homemade bread, tins and toiletries, as well as treats such as confectionery, jams, marmalades and chutneys. We are pleased to have many local artisan suppliers on board, providing Middleton Hall blend of coffee, cheeses and locally churned butter, for example.
Presiding over the occasion was Hampton, the magnificent cockerel , named after the first visitor to the shop. There was a real buzz as people gathered around with a glass of punch to celebrate the launch.
The Stables Shop will keep the same hours as the Orangery (8.30am – 8.00pm daily). Come along and have a look for yourselves!
