Local girl does good.

Leslie Ann Whittle has become a local Author of Ashton under Lyne and is having a book signing on the 3rd of October in the Oasis Café. Its good to have a great book to read with a cuppa and a cake. See you There Oasis Cafe, Stamford Street Central, Ashton under Lyne OL6 7LP.

Baking has taken off again in our kitchen. The aroma of sweet cakes and baked treats fill the air. Check out the follow pictures, and come on down to the Oasis Café for some delicious and freshly baked goodies.

Holly is 15 years old and at college taking a patisserie course. Would you believe a 15 year old could make all these cakes in two and a half hours (plus 2 lemon drizzle cakes) Amazing! Holly is with us every alternate Saturday.

Here is Stuart making the most of some cooking apples given to use from a close friend grown locally. A delicious layer of apples and crunchy crumble.

The allotment has been kept going by Janice, Pam and Tony since March, their expertise has grown red onions, white onions and rhubarb (Due to Covid-19 and limit availability of Members, crop harvested has been small this year). Above the spoils of a recent harvest. The allotment is now ready to be composted for the winter.

Cellar Update

Update in the cellar: all the walls have been PVA’d to seal the brick work and now we are considering a nice warm brick colour to go paint the walls. Accomplished by Dave, Paul and Tony the three musketeers.

To follow the cellars progression take a look at our new “Projects” page highlighted on the top right of the main page.
