A special presentation of a signed card and a hamper each was made to both Yare Valley Farm Shop and Teles Patisserie this afternoon in recognition of their outstanding contribution to our wonderful community during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Tim, Will, Glenn and Lily (busy in Sheringham today) have kept Yare Valley Farm Shop stocked with all manner of fabulous local goodies and basic essentials. The shop has remained open 7 days a week and has become a lifeline for many Surlingham residents; and beyond!
Similarly, Joaquim and Ana restructured their patisserie and have been selling freshly baked cakes, pastries and bread 6 days a week. In addition to their normal opening hours, they have also collected shopping for vulnerable and isolating regulars, and have started regular deliveries to our village and beyond. Joaquim and Ana have also coordinated the collection and delivery of hampers to a number of NHS facilities over the last 8 weeks.
Many thanks to Simon Tait who organised the collection on behalf of the Village Volunteers and made the presentations, to Amanda Addison & Cynthia Finlayson for creating the ‘thank-you cards’ and to the MANY kind residents of our village who gave so generously.
Surlingham is truly a wonderful community! 😊
