Classic Car Sunday at Apley Farm Shop
21st May 2015
Lord Hamilton of Dalzell, Apley Estate owner began, “It’s Apley’s 3rd Classic Car Sunday & a great way to start your summer holidays. It’s always a fun day out & an occasion for local enthusiasts to show off their classic car & share their passion. I really enjoy chatting to the owners before 2pm when I have the tricky task of choosing a winner.“
Lady Harriet Hamilton, Marketing Manager added “As always at Apley Farm Shop events, there will be something on for everyone. We’re very much a family destination, offering local food for local people – and also a great day out. “
“The Creamery Café will be ready to offer those arriving early Apley’s well-loved breakfasts & later on, our traditional roast Sunday lunch. For later visitors, Julie Wycherley’s cakes, handmade on site, make Apley’s Afternoon Teas a real treat” explained Head Chef Martin McKee.
Customers can enjoy their al fresco barbecue all the more by selecting their favourite music on the juke box in the Courtyard. Tina Buckland, General Manager said “It creates a real holiday atmosphere, which we found was really appreciated by those too busy – like our local farmers - to get away at this time of year. “
Once again, Churchfields Icecreams will be inviting customers to create their own icecream flavour, then top it with a free fruit coulis made by The Best of Taste Company, also very local, from Oswestry.
Andy Ecclestone, Farm Shop supervisor added “During all our Apley events, we are finding more & more of our customers are taking the opportunity for a healthy country picnic by stocking up in the Farm Shop & heading off on our free Skylark Nature Trail. It’s very easy walking, with comfortable benches along the way.”
In the Courtyard, there will be face painting & games for younger visitors. Scotty’s Animal Park will be open as usual, where children can feed the animals, ride a donkey ride, dig in the sandpit or enjoy the bouncy castle. To make it a really relaxing day, at Annie’s Reiki Centre customers can try a special 10 minute neck & shoulder massage for £5.
