The Launch day for for Great Easton P.O was a great success. The Pimms went down a treat at 10.30am as did the homemade cakes - brownies/granola various fairy cakes and the dipping rapeseed oils & balsamics. Another favourite was the new Aitkins & Potts range of finishing sauces (wild mushroom & vermouth), soups (apple & butternut squash) and sweet (butter toffee) & savoury (blue cheese & basil) dips.

The new deli was popular, with a rush on olives and sunblushed tomatoes.

Joseph Morris now supplies great quality meats and deep filled sausage rolls and their pork pies are to die for!!

Pictured are the first customers of the day Mr Juris Vizmia and his daughter Clara and at the back Mr Brian Tyler with myself -Elizabeth Hankey presenting a box of Thorntons chocolates.
