Our resident lifestyle blogger Amanda, aka Ginger Mum, shares the success stories of local food businesses who continue to support the community…
I’m hoping this bumper edition finds you all well and coping with this, the toughest of times.
The best thing to come from this distorted reality has been the sense of community, which has flourished in the face of adversity and whilst most businesses have sadly had to close, others have become a lifeline to the community.
I have to highlight three among many. Nonna’s in Woburn Sands not only continue to deliver their gastronomic delights, but you can have a side order of quarantine essentials with your cuisine.
They have set up a shop within the restaurant for takeaway staple supplies aligned with all the government guidelines and really are serving their local community.
The Calzone Kitchen is banging out tasty treats, their ovens are in full swing as demand for great quality dinners prevails.
Restaurant feels in the comfort of your own home, no wonder their chicken & chorizo calzone is a best seller! Get your order in before they sell out again!
And for the most delectable of treats, Oh My Cakery is baking the best sweeteners to get us through these crazy days. With local deliveries and postables further afield, we couldn’t be more grateful for this wonderful family business.
One little lockdown luxury I’ve been loving is my Lush stash. Prior to Covid-19, I spent a fun morning in the huge centre:mk store and it was such a revelation to me.
I thought it was merely a mecca for smellies and gifts but I discovered so much more. The drive to be sustainable in the store is an inspiration, the mix of ingredients to kiss the skin are inspired and the knowledge of the staff in the store is second to none.
Make sure you utilise any little home spa style goodies you have and take a bit of time just to feel pampered.
Make the most of this down time because one things for sure, when life gets back to the new normal, it’s going to be a busy one. Stay safe x
