Corner House Stores Refurbishment

What exciting news for the village – the Corner House Stores and Post Office is to be refurbished in order to maximise their service area and to stock new products.

We wish Michaela and her team all the best for the re-launch and for the future.

Unfortunately, it does mean that the Post Office will be shut from the 6th to the 18th November and the shop from the 11th to the 18th. A pop-up shop will sell basics from the alleyway beside the shop in the mornings – full details on the leaflet reproduced below.

Olds Garage Site

Building has begun at last.

The developers have informed us that they are beginning by building the curved terrace of three houses – these are the houses nearest to the Chalky Road corner.

They are awaiting a planning decision on an application to make small changes to the plans for the pair of semi-detached houses on the other part of the site.

After more than fifteen years of world-wide touring and three album releases, Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson – otherwise known as the folk duo Hungrytown – have a reputation for the quality and authenticity of their songwriting: “It’s great to hear an act eschew sentimentality in favour of honesty and to prove that you don’t have to go raiding the memory of others to find the stuff that really good songs are made of,” writes Jedd Beaudoin of Popmatters.
Lyricist Rebecca Hall is credited with compositions “that sound as timeless as any traditional songs” (Northern Sky, UK) while producer/multi-instrumentalist/ husband Ken Anderson is lauded for his “remarkable affinity for instrumental embellishment” (No Depression) and for crafting Hungrytown’s “gorgeous vocal harmonies” (Folk and Roots, UK).
