Well Christmas is nearly here and we’re well in truly in the middle of the Chocolate making maelstrom! As I type the chocolate factory crew are beavering away making and packing. We’ve had a fantastic run-up to Christmas with some wonderful events such as BBC Good Food Show (where we were good Food Champions!), Lipsmacking festival and Lady Landsdowne’s Christmas Fair at Bowood House.
At the moment we’re in the last week of Bath Christmas market and you can see us at Chalet 48 (it’s a Chalet not a shed don’t you know?) directly outside of the Tourist Information in Bath Abbey courtyard. It’s a beautiful destination with choirs performing in the Abbey and the only Christmas Market to be quality approved by Visit England. You can see lovely Amy who normally supervises packing and dispatching meeting her public on the rare day she escapes the packing desk!
Our Cirencester shop is looking very festive with a giant chocolate Christmas Tree in the window. We have lots of freshly made chocolates and some specials you won’t find anywhere else, even on our website. So do pop over, the town looks beautiful and very classical. We plan to do some tasting sessions next week and in the days before Christmas.
If you’ve ordered online from us then we are packing and dispatching daily. We are carefully checking delivery day requests and use a courier Interlink Express for most UK mainland orders. So there’s still plenty of time to order and we’ll post up cut-off dates on the website nearer the time. Some Scottish Highlands, Islands and offshore orders are sent by Royal Mail, so you should order these sooner as they take a little longer. We expect to be on top of online orders next week together with some large corporate hamper orders!
If you want to collect from Corsham please order online and use the Local Pickup option. Unfortunately we can’t take telephone orders as we’re just to busy making and packing but you can order anything on our website to collect if you’re local to Corsham.
We expect to be featured on the One Show in the next couple of weeks and we’ll put out a post as soon as we know the broadcast date.
That’s it for now folks… more soon! Matthew
