The Hive Hut, East Hendred
No Black Friday to see here!
This week and weekend we are looking at things differently.
Of course we want you to shop sustainably and sensibly and with
zero waste but we don’t want you to be buying for the sake of
buying, and over consuming.
Black Friday has lost its meaning - the big companies just
reap profits, and that’s not sustainable for small companies.
So no discounts here I am afraid (we do have a clearance section),
but we will be donating 20% of all sale profits from Midnight
Thursday to Midnight Sunday to the Hendred Environment Group,
towards their rewilding vision and campaign for East Hendred.
You can shop with us here
Thank you for your support and understanding!

Pizza Van on Wednesday 2nd December Evening

4:30 to 8:30pm at Snells Hall, East Hendred car park.
Pre-order from Monday morning and pay for delicious
pizza by calling 07789 722138

safely collect your pizza from a table by the van.

Springline Radio Players gets ready for Christmas.
Whether you are in a lockdown, locked out or just locked in,
please visit our podcast on https://springlineamdram.podbean.com
and listen to our three audio dramas.
The first is “Christmas Letters” by Ken Starling - keeping in
touch with relatives you rarely see is sometimes solved by a
letter tucked inside a Christmas card. Over time, these fit
together rather like a jigsaw puzzle, but is the final picture
the one you were expecting? Going live on Friday, 11 December 2020.
Our second needs no introduction and is “Christmas Carol” by
Charles Dickens, available on Christmas Eve, Thursday, 24 December 2020.
And finally, we have another Dickens classic, “Pickwick Papers” which
is available on Boxing Day, Saturday, 26 December 2020 and will be
posted in nine 15-minute episodes with episode two on the web site
two weeks later in January 2021.
If you would like to get involved in our audio dramas then please

costumes and no stage appearance – just a load of fun.
