Creamery Cafe Open...shhhh...

Creamery Cafe
Creamery Cafe

Keep it quiet, but the Cheesemakers Shop on Nottingham Road now has a Cafe where it is serving drinks – and food.

It's a new venture for Cropwell Bishop Creamery and staff are still working hard to ensure they have thought of everything that might be needed. For this reason they are keeping it low key for the time being.

Having said that, we have enjoyed coffee drinks and a Ploughman's Board in the last week.

It has a lovely clean, airy atmosphere; staff serve you at your table – you can't help but feel relaxed.

The coffees and food have been excellent.

Great place for meeting up with friends.

Cafe open: 10am-3pm, Mon-Sat.

Maybe best not to tell anyone else – we don't want to find it full when we next pop in!

Who Lives Here?

The Parish Council of course – it's The Old School!

The door has had a very smart makeover so you might not have recognised it.


Thanks to Mel Stanley for photo.




Camp Cropwell on D-Day 80th Anniversary

There was a lovely friendly atmosphere on the Memorial Hall field today where members of The Military Vehicle Trust, and volunteer helpers from the village, worked to create a mixture of serious reflection and fun activities.

These photos give a taste of it.

Peace and Beauty in our Village

If you’ve time to sit, The Old School Garden and Jubilee Garden are looking beautiful.

I’m sure our secret gardener planted the pink Rose for The Queen.

Northern Lights Spectacular in Cropwell Bishop

Last night in Cropwell Bishop, was by far the most spectacular show of the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) I have ever seen.

Here are a few of the photos I took on my phone camera in the back garden during a hectic hour.

I have to be honest; the naked eye view was not as spectacular. The patterns, colours and streaks could all be seen clearly, but they were not bright as in the photos.

Nevertheless, it was an amazing sight – all for free.

If you have any photos you would like me to put on the website, just send them to me.
