New in store: Bird Food and Feeders for your garden

We’ve recently introduced a range of wild bird food and feeders in store, helping our customers choose the right combination to attract a wider range of birds into their gardens. Pop in store to shop our range, where Gary and Kay will also be on hand to offer advice about making the right selection.

The future of Galmpton Post Office

A word from our Postmaster, Gary Deare.

Please see my recently produced article on the future of Galmpton Post Office, in which I look back on the history of the Post Office and the difficulties faced today.

I would welcome feedback on the article, either in person at the Post Office, or by email.

There are many ways to support Galmpton Post Office. For example, ask me how your building and contents insurance can help sustain the Post Office in Galmpton.

We’ve gone green instore!

Along with our commitment to reduce plastic waste in store, we are now running the store on ‘green’ electricity. Having recently renewed our energy plan, our electricity is now supplied by renewable sources including solar power and wind farms.

Let’s turn the plastic tide: November update

For more information on what else we’ve been up to this year so far in an attempt to reduce our plastic consumption, click here.

Local Town Crier wins Best Dressed at National Competition

The Ancient and Honourable Guild of Town Criers National Competition took place on 4th August 2018 at Castle Hill, Windsor on the lawn of the outer moat, next to Salisbury Tower. Permission was granted by Her Majesty The Queen and notably, this was the first time in living memory that an event has been staged at this location

The competition is an annual event held in a different town each year. 38 criers took part from all over the country and included two criers from Australia (Victor Harbor and Lane Cove, Sydney).

The ‘cry’ in the morning was a home cry and the subject for the ‘cry’ in the afternoon was ‘A Celebration’. Criers were required to write their own cries of no more than 125 words including the opening words ‘Oyez, Oyez, Oyez’ and finishing with ‘God save The Queen’.

Winning Best Dressed Crier was Les Ellis, our local town crier, pictured below with wife Liz. Les’ new regalia was made by local seamstress Sophie Tope. Congratulations Les from all the team at Galleon Stores.

New in store: Chutneys, Relishes, Dressings and more

Summer barbeques will never have tasted so good with the addition of our latest product lines in store.

We’re now stocking a selection of Otter Vale’s handmade gluten-free chutney, jelly and relish including Onion & Pineapple Devon Chutney, Date & Fig Relish and Quince Jelly. We’d recommend a dollop with a slice of your favourite cheese on one of Peter’s Yard’s Original Sourdough Crispbreads – also now available in store.

If it’s a crisp, fresh salad you’re after, why not pop in and pick up a jar of Caesar or Salad Dressing from Mary Berry’s Inspired Family Recipes range.

Or pair Atkins & Potts’ Buttery Hollandaise Sauce with asparagus and steamed veg – though served over Eggs Benedict works just as well.
