Fresh Food

Recommended Posts

We recently purchased our meat at Don Lynns, the local butchers and I was really pleased to get good quality meat for the same cost as the supermarket. We r now shopping there each week. Great service.

We have been boycotting Asda for sometime now, still have to go in for certain things but our main shop is done locally so that money is going to local producers for nicer food.

Up the revolution and all that.

Outsider, Don Lynn is an excellent butcher and like all the local butchers they need supporting.

Brettly, Thats the way, We use ASDA on occasion to buy kids clothes etc. or maybe the odd shop, we get all our meat from Bobby Cowells at Bedlington Station another excellent butcher. Do me a favour, ditch that logo, its sending m e i n t o aaaaaaa t r aaaaaanzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

We go to Herons Freezer shop in Ashtoon for biscwits and general rubbish for the bairns cupboard but use Laidlers in Delaval for our fruit and veg. Loads of the stuff is locally sourced and cheap as chips.

Currently got cucumbers, courgettes, tomatoes, strawberries and got some potatoes and onions on the way in the back garden too. Even if it saves us a little bit a week by using the home stuff it's better than giving it to Wal Mart.

We go to laidlers for some stuff,not all is local though. Spuds from Lincolnshire and beyond for instance. But will agree they are cheep.

Just wondered if any of you have stumbled across www.thevegboxcompany.co.uk yet. They are a fairly new company set up in Bedlington that delivers a selection of fruit , veg and eggs to your door on a regular basis. Its all in season stuff and is quite reasonable prices. I have not tried them myself yet due to the fact I couldn't be in when they deliver (saturdays) but the comments they are getting on facebook about their service is really good. If anyone has had stuff from them please let the rest of us know what they are like. thanks. x

Yep, Cherry has made us all aware of their existence, not heard from her for a while though.

      A caring and much-loved great-great-grandmother has enjoyed birthday greetings from over 3,000 people as she turns 100.
      Former care assistant Rosie Cochrane entered her second century on January 21 this year.
      Although lockdown means the celebration, from her assisted living home in Bedlington, wasn't quite what she might have planned before the pandemic, granddaughter Christine Logan was determined to ensure 'Granny Rosie' was showered with love on her special day.
      Northumberland County Council fostering team manager Christine said: “Growing up I would watch her and my mam care for others, and just knew I wanted to do the same.
      "She has always put others first and cared for others where she can, be it family, friends or through her work. She is a real inspiration and it is because of her I chose my career path and have also fostered to help others in any way I can.
      "It has been a really difficult time not being able to see her. She loves to get her nails and hair done, go shopping and travel. But we know we must do all we can to keep her safe and ourselves right now.
