THE INKPEN MARKET ...

Josephine Stark writes: “Please come to the March Market which is in the Village Hall on Sunday 17th from 10am to 12.30pm. You will find that there is a new stall where Emma Moscow is showing her beautiful bespoke hats. So, should you have a wedding or other event to go to this summer that will require a hat, come and have a chat with her. And Linda Marshall returns with her wide range of scarves, buttons and bags. Lesley will bring bird seed and feeders and nest boxes. This is the last month she will be coming before returning in the autumn, so stock up now to see the birds through the nesting season.

Our regular stalls are all there – free range eggs and sausages all produced in Inkpen, artisan cheese, homemade cakes, traybakes, breads, honey, jams, marmalade, chutneys and pickles, raspberry vinegar, homemade soup, fish pate and vegetables in season. Come also for quality garden plants, cards for all occasions, second hand books, a freshly made bacon roll, tea and coffee and a go on the tombola!

The April market is on Sunday 21st - EASTER DAY! Make sure you come and bring your visitors! There will be a free Easter egg to all and plenty of craft stalls this month, including a new one.

THE CROWN & GARTER


Jane from the Crown and Garter writes:

“So at last we are seeing the first signs of Spring and to match this we have a new Menu with many seasonal dishes. Among them we have as a starter an amazing Camembert, fig and onion tart served with sesame seed dressing, and to follow a really tasty smoked garlic, steak and kidney pie, all home-made. We have some amazing new wines on our wine list to complement these beautiful dishes. So all is new for the Spring. We will also have our excellent and beautiful Mothers’ Day menu ready for 31st March, so remember to book early".


INKPEN VILLAGE DRINKS

This is an invitation for all Inkpen residents to come to The Crown and Garter for a very informal drink, on Thursday 7th March. The pub will be open as usual and it will be the normal paid bar, but they will be keeping a space reserved so that local villagers can pop in for a drink or two that evening and meet other villagers. We hope you will be able to come anytime from 7pm onwards. Everyone from the village is very welcome.
