Egg supplies decreasing at 'alarming rate' due to avian flu, warn bakers


Egg supplies decreasing at 'alarming rate'

Note from Keith & Pauline:
The general egg market is in turmoil as highlighted in the recent article below. However, there is no need to worry at 'The Old Post Office Luxury B&B' as we are self-sufficient and we don't require stock from anywhere else. Our 'ladies' are fit and healthy through being free range and plenty of space to roam and sleep - they put themselves to bed each night, you know.

Semi-Retirement Opportunity Seized

July 11th has arrived - the first day of the rest of our lives and particularly important because this is the first day that my wife, Pauline, enters the new phase of our working lives.


Semi-Retirement Opportunity Seized
