Stop press: Orford General Store Awards

Firstly congratulations to all those at the Orford General Store for winning the Countryside Alliance UK and Ireland Village Shop and Post Office Champion 2012. We missed visiting when I wrote the piece below and have since caught up with this wonderful village shop, Post Office, cafe, butcher and delicatessen. It is a great example of how to compete with the big supermarkets and keep a village hub going. The Eadt Suffolk Magazine has featured Orford recently see link here

About Rural idyller

As well as being a father, husband, publisher and food fanatic I also love East Anglia and the countryside. After five years with a large allotment in Hertfordshire I am now lucky enough to have 4 acres of very rural Suffolk countryside. I will blog on how I get this all under control and the produce as it develops. For more on the rural idyll go to www.ruralidyll.co.uk and my other blog which focuses on rural life of the past present and future www.ruralism.co.uk . Updates will take a bit of time- too much gardening to do!
