Those from around these parts will already know of Beckworth’s – or to give it its full title: Beckworth Emporium. For once, Emporium sounds like an accurate description! ?
For those of my readers outside the area, think old-school supermarket plus an expansive (but not expensive) garden centre, all topped-off with a rather sizeable eatery. Oh, and at Christmas, they add an ice-rink!
The supermarket layout and style is the sort that features a wide range of goods (with an unrivalled range of ready-meals) together with a couple of face-to-face service areas that include a meat counter featuring real Butchers (if you’re in a hurry, so much more efficient than deceased ones!) ?
We haven’t been here for a while, and today’s excuse (not that we need one!) was to sample their Afternoon Tea with neighbours and friends, David & Val – with the added bonus of a voucher that we received as a gift at Christmas from Derek & Lydia
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
