We are in the shop picking and packing your orders as efficiently as usual. Likewise, responding to your emails, telephone calls and messages.
This is where we announce our Shop Open Days.
Because of COVID-19, we don't have anything planned for the forseeable future. We hope to see you when normality returns.
We try to hold one Shop Open Day per month, generally featuring the treasures we've brought back from our most recent travels in Africa.
If you're coming to the shop for an Open Day - or by appointment - you've got plenty of excellent options for grabbing a bite to eat in Meltham, all less than five minutes away walking. Here are some of our favourites, in no particular order.
Our pal Gemma and her team are always busy in this welcoming, home-style café. Bob always has pie and peas, except when he has Yorkshire pudding piled with roast beef and gravy. Magie loves her toasties. Best espresso and cappucino in Meltham. Highly rated at 4.5 on Tripadvisor.

A Meltham institution and the only place to go for takeaway sandwiches - especially bacon and sausages reared on the family farm. Best pork pies and Scotch eggs on the planet. A good choice of cheeses and salad boxes as well. Top rated 5.0 on Tripadvisor.

Given that we are right in the glorious Pennines, we're amazed that Meltham doesn't have more accommodation right here in the village.
CPS Estate Agents here in the village lets out a lovely micro apartment right in the village centre at a reasonable £49 per night.
Other than that, try Airbnb, etc. for options in the area, including in Holmfirth.
