Sibbertoft is an active community and many people regularly give their time to provide clubs and events:
Village pop-up shop
Due to current events Sibbertoft Sunday teas opening is delayed we may not be able to open for business at all this year! A great disappointment to many as we know how much our loyal customers look forward to visiting us week by week throughout the season. We have also lost a huge part of our income stream (£8000 pa). Many people have no idea that the basic cost of running our church is £20,000 a year! So we have come up with a new ideas to raise funds and keep connected with the community. The weekend Pop-up Shop is born. At the time of writing (16th April) we have been open for 2 weekends and are overwhelmed by the support and generosity people are showing. We have raised £400! Thank you to all who have supported thus far.
Lesley’s and Cynthia’s greenhouses are filling up nicely and our allotments bursting into spring growth. Our Pop-up shops are situated outside Roserie Cottage, Westhorpe and Beam House, Welland Rise. Weather and stock permitting we will set up on Saturdays and or Sundays offering a selection of seasonal ornamental herbaceous/perennials and annual plants and flowers. Vegetable and salad plants to grow in your own gardens, greenhouses or patios. Plus cut flowers fresh fruit and vegetables as they come available. Together with home-made jams, marmalade etc. We are happy to receive donations of suitable items to sell from other residents. Contact Lesley via Sibbertoft Social WhatsApp group.
Contactless, hand washing facilities. Honesty box and IOU system. Recycling containers, no transport miles and introducing peat-free compost. All good environmental practices and free gardening tips and advice should you need it.
