just up the road...

Just up the road from Fruit Towers is one of the saddest looking window displays we've ever seen. Simply filled with green balloons in various states of deflation this shop is crying out for some love. 


To counter this sad retail display someone decided to lift local spirits and build a block of golden flats.

Hello, we're very sad to say that we've had to cancel our Fruit Sports Day. With so much stuff going on this summer in the run up to the Olympics, there's a lot of competition for people's time. A busy summer along with
a spell of bad weather has meant ticket sales for our Fruit Sports Day festival haven’t been as good as we'd needed them to be to ensure a great day out. We're sorry for the inconvenience, but we think it's a much better decision to postpone this year and run a bigger and better event in the future.

If you've already bought a ticket, we'll be in touch shortly to refund you. If you have any other questions, please pop them through to

gearing up for getting down (cut out and keep Corgi)

There's only two more days to go until Jubilee fever hits the nation. 

If like us you feel slightly overwhelmed by the amount of things left to do - bunting hanging, sandwich making (for your entire street) and you can't seem to find enough teapots to make darjeeling for 300 people, then take a few minutes out of your busy schedule, print out this cheeky Royal Corgi, cut him out and then set him to work on that pile of cucumber finger rolls.
