Today marked a very special and sad day for the Potts family. Today would have been Eveline’s 100th birthday. She was born in Disley in 1921 to Arthur and Mary Lavinia Cookson. She met Wilfrid in our current shop and the dated going for walks locally. They both went on to work at AVRO in Woodford and married in 1942 on a Wednesday which was half day closing at the shop. They went on to have Ian their only son and current owner of the bakery in 1945. Eveline and Wilfrid continued to run the shop for many years retiring in the 80’s. Eveline was one of the kindest and truest ladies that anybody could ever meet. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. We hope you will raise a glass in her honour an remember our beloved mother and grandmother while she celebrates in heaven.

Calling all honey fans the perfect accompaniment to our delicious home baked treats.....we’ve added some Pure Welsh Honey to our expanding collection of local honey, wildflower honey and English honey.....here’s a little of the background story to how it all started from Stuart Hill the grandson of the original Welsh beekeepers.......

🐝The journey began over 20 years ago when my Nana and Grandad decided to become beekeepers in Wrexham, Wales.

🐝They both had a massive passion for bees and honey and this was clearly shown in the honey they produced over so many years.

🐝They not only thrived on producing honey but they had a great passion for telling people how to care for bees, including the understanding of how the hives work and the day to day life of a bee and hives habitats in general.

🐝They were also well known to the Welsh Council and were always happy to assist if any bees decided to swarm or if the general public had any issues with bees in their homes.

🐝They provided a free service to make sure the bees remained safe as well as the general public.

🐝Nothing made them more happy to stop and explain the process of honey to people.

🐝The returning customers and amazing reviews made the passion grow even more.

🐝They had a show hive that they took to many honey shows and honey combs to show the younger generations to explain and simplify the process.

🐝For many years they won massive amounts of awards for their honey.

🏆‘1st in class’ year after year!!!

🐝Multi award winning time and time again. It is clearly shown in the product produced here today.

🐝All there passion and hard work and dedication to their bees and honey.

🐝Sadly my nana gave up the bees due to old age and my grandad sadly passed away.

🐝They both decided to sell the bees to Edig Hall in Wales where they kept many of their hives for many years.

🐝Before finally saying goodbye they gave up their time and knowledge to the staff to make sure that the understanding and passion remained with their hives and bees for many more years.

🐝There is going to be a limited number of jars available as this is the last of their honey and sadly the end of their journey.

🐝This will be run in small batches to preserve the quality and freshness of the product.

Today marks an end of an era in the British Royal family when HRH Prince Philip The Duke of Edinburg is laid to rest. We did a small tribute to a man who has served our queen and country with constant loyalty and honour and achieved more in his 99 years than most will ever dream of. Our loyal and remarkable armed forces are sure to give The Duke the send off he deserves today, another day to feel proud to be British 🇬🇧

Sorry to have to do yet another boring reminder about wearing masks in our shop but as I’m sure we’re all aware it is still mandatory to do so. Please ensure you wear yours when entering the shop, making sure it covers your nose and mouth.....just covering your chin doesn’t really count 🙄 we all need to help protect each other and until the guidelines are officially changed you are still required to wear a face covering of some description.
Can we also please remind people it’s 2 separate people at a time (unless you’re with children) and try to remain spaced out in the marked boxes. We have to comply with these guidelines to remain open. Thank you for your support and understanding the Potts Family ❤️
