Cropwell Bishop Village Parish Plan

Selling items (30-1-16)

I have added 5 items to the Selling section of the NEW WEBSITE. See yesterday's acticle for a link to the new site.


Cropwell Bishop Bakery (29-1-16)

Garry Jowett is our Village Butcher but did you know that he also sells bread made at a bakery in Cropwell Bishop?

"Turners Quality Bakers" supply Garry with a full range of traditional English bread and rolls as well as a range of modern breads including Spelt, Rye, Corn, Mediterranean & Sodas—to mention a few.

Why not pop into his shop on Nottingham Road and try out some of these breads.

Do you have a photo of Cropwell Bishop Garage? (17-12-15)

Old Garage Pete Simpson used to live in the village and his father, Jim Simpson, worked at the old Cropwell Bishop Gargage that used to be on Nottingham Road — where Lenton Close is now.

He trying to find photos of the Garage as it was in the 1960s. I have located the one on the right but do you have one of your own that you could share with Pete?

If so, please email me.
