didsbury festival 2016

Now into its remarkable 37th year, we are delighted to once again be sponsoring the Didsbury Festival which takes place in Didsbury Park on Saturday 11th June.

It’s a great local event which starts with a procession from St Catherine’s Primary school and heads into Didsbury park for the day’s many stalls and events…

The Arena events include the wonderful children’s dance troop from the village, a varied display of musical talent as well as the chance for you to join in a lively Zumba session!

The procession includes children from all the local schools in Didsbury, as well as the 5th Manchester Boys Brigade band.

All this in addition to the Festival fairground, the annual dog competition and the variety of food and drinks stalls in the Festival café area as well as selected stalls around the park.

3 little pigs – the didsbury butchers

Its great to see another new business open in Didsbury village, and this one looks set to be a cracker and is just across the road from our branch.

Having just opened on 16th May, 3 Little Pigs is an exciting new Butchery business at 735 Wilmslow Road and has a state-of-the-art display with customers being able to see the preparation area and maturing fridge through a full length window!

3 Little Pigs will shamelessly aspire to the premium end of the market place, looking at innovative styles associated with new products and responding to contemporary cooking styles.

Whilst ‘premium’ indicates to some high end cost, they make the distinction more in terms of supply chain, traceability, quality assurance, animal welfare and the expertise of butchery in the shop.

They even have their own supply of home reared life stock in their family owned Cheshire pasture land where their own cows, pigs, chickens and ducks are free to roam.

This family affair are very much part of the Didsbury community already, and we wish them every success with this exciting new venture.
