Both the Stableyard Restaurant at Redlands Yard and the White Lion in Broadwindsor are getting booked up since advertising their Christmas Menus… It is recommended that you book now to avoid any disappointment.
In 2 weeks timeRich and Dani will be closing the doors of their little bakery at Redlands Yard. Fear not they say, as they will be making a return just down the road in a very exciting new space in the heart of Broadwindsor.
They are currently working very hard on turning The Old Post Office (the old village shop) into their brand new bakery and the space has bags of potential. There will be new bakes, cakes and pastries as well as Local Honey, Beewrapuk will be back in stock plus so much more…
They also have a coffee machine incoming!
They hope to be back open by the second week in October, but with all things that require building works, this has to be fluid. Follow them on their Facebookpage for updates and progress – clcik HERE.
They’re looking forward to seeing you all at the start of their new and exciting chapter!
Rich & Dani from the Wobbly Cottage micro bakery at Redlands Yard are taking a much needed long weekend!
They will be closed today, Friday, 2nd September and will reopen on Wednesday, 7th September with all their retail stockists (@tytherleighfarmshop @wearesoulshine and @brassicarestaurant_mercantile ) receiving their first deliveries on this day too!
They are looking forward to some very exciting times ahead when they are back so click HEREto follow them on Facebookfor updates over the next month or so…..
The recycling bins for tetrapaks and aluminium foil items are moving from Redlands Yard to the Comrades Hall car park.
Pleasetake your recycling there from now on.
Pleasedon’t put any other items in these bins – it is very unpleasant for volunteers!!
…Talking of which they urgently need more. Recently, two volunteers have left and now there are slots for the upcoming months not covered.
If you are able, please help. It isn’t difficult or time consuming… a trip to Bridport. What it does mean is that this service, which is so important, can remain local. Contact Jackie Riley:01308 862632
The recycling of tetrapaks and aluminium items has been going on for some years now with the help of six sets of volunteers managing a month every six months and has largely been working well with backup from Tony and I.
Recently I received a complaint as the bins were overflowing. It is vital if you cannot manage your month or even some of it to let me know so I can either swop you with someone else or step in and help. If this doesn’t happen then we have the situation we had last week with tetrapaks everywhere and a very unsightly situation. It is also a potential attraction to vermin even more concerning.
I would be delighted to receive the offer of help from more people so I have a bank of people to provide back up. All it entails is weekly emptying of both bins and at the end of your month a trip to Bridport recycling when you are heading that way to be environmentally friendly. Provision of two large bin bags and that is it!
Pegs have been provided to ensure the bin bags stay secure.
Many thanks for any offers of help in advance. This benefits us all and the planet.

Now located at StudioOne, Becca stated: “The space neatly divides up to teaching & shop space. Great access, no steps or tricky slopes! If you haven’t said Hi yet, pop by. The shop is stocked up with goodies & all the essential cutting equipment, markers, pins, needles, rulers, wadding & ribbons. New fabrics arriving regularly and classes every week.
The class room has sewing machines if you need them, to save you lugging them from the car park. Any problems booking or you’d prefer to do it over the phone, please don’t hesitate to call.”
