Fancy a change?

Fed up with cooking?

Have a night off with Delivery Food from Foxes!

All dishes arrived chilled & ready to pop in the oven.

Looking for catering food that is delivered then Foxes catering from Hungerford may fit the bill!



Saturday evening Nick & I went out to do a dinner for some people, going down the hill the heavens opened, the rain came down like you wouldn’t believe, you could barely see the road and then suddenly inches of water was on the road surface, it was like being on a bad 50’s film set with buckets of water being thrown over the windscreen !

Not being much of a mainstream telly watcher I have to mention these channels to you, as they are usually so fascinating, Together TV, Smithsonian, PBS and Yesterday, all on freeview.

I expect many have already discovered them,  but what always catches my eye, is the old footage of the wars that have now been colourised.

It makes everything so much more impacting to see so many of those scenes in colour.

When I was small we had black and white TV, and I can remember colour arriving.

My Dad, who had recently built the bungalow we grew up in, told us a building inspector was coming to see the house and our bedrooms had to be spotless.

A man turned up with a television set and installed it.

My parents seemed excited and pleased with this new acquisition, whilst I waited and waited for the building inspector who never came !

A cunning scheme to get the kids to tidy their rooms!

Then some months later, I recall quite a few neighbours coming to watch the wedding of Princess Anne to Mark Philips in colour.

Seems a lifetime back now black and white telly.

We hope the change to the Drop Off Food Company isn’t causing too much kafuffle, your patience whilst we get everything in place is appreciated, but rest assured will not affect the service in the change over.

With the winter weather being unpredictable we are not quite stew and dumplings this week, but more, warming for the cold season, and incorporating a few foreign travel temptations.

We hope you may be tempted while you sit in the warm and watch the rain trickle down the panes.

Have a good week, it may be dark in the mornings still at 8am, but when it is not tipping down you can just feel the light a little longer.

Best wishes, 

Nick & Karen

They are increasingly asked to provide afternoon tea for all different occasions.

Traditionally, afternoon tea is a mix of sandwiches, scones and cake and, in the 19th century, was served around 4pm to fill the long gap between lunch and dinner, which could be served as late as 8pm.

Lifestyles have changed and afternoon tea is seen as more of a treat and it can be an ideal offering at a wedding or any party occasion.

They are offering an Afternoon Tea delivery service, and can be a lovely way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion.
