Our winter hanging baskets were delivered today by Cove Nursery http://www.covegardennursery.co.uk/ and these are to be hung outside of the shop.
I hope others in Bampton take our lead and plant up some pansies to add a bit of colour through the grey winter.
A chap came in and asked if we sold sparklers, which we don’t.
As you need a licence to sell fireworks, and I would have thought sparklers would be classed as a firework, we wouldn’t sell them and I don’t think anyone in Bampton sells them either.
I’ve just checked on Google and there are some interesting facts about buying, selling and setting off fireworks http://www.firework-review.org.uk/firework-laws-regulations/
Was I glad to see this bus arrive?
A couple came in just before 3pm and asked where they should catch the bus to Dulverton.
I checked my bus time list and said a bus was due in a couple of minutes and it could be caught just across the road although you must hail the bus as it is a request stop.
I looked out of the window at 3:25 and they were still stood there.
I checked my bus time list and oops the 3:04 bus comes from Taunton and leaves from the stop near the War Memorial at the top end of town.
Luckily the next bus due across the road was 3:32 so they hopped on board.
I hope they think that the bus was just late!
