    Stratford Upon Avon

    Every visit to Stratford would not be complete without finding out more about the English poet and playwright that makes it famous. Shakespeare's Birthplace allows you to visit the house where the world’s most famous playwright was born and grew up to discover more about his early years.

    Other must see Shakespeare locations include Hall's Croft (home to William's daughter), Nash's House and New Place (the last chapter in his life), Anne Hathaway's cottage (a romantic setting) and Mary Arden's Farm (the childhood home of Shakespeare's mother)

    Place to visit in FranceTours is south west of Paris,  the river, it's a lovely town (quite a large town).  It stands on the lower reaches of the river Loire, between Orléans and the Atlantic coast. 

    Touraine, the region around Tours, is known for its wines, the alleged perfection (as perceived by some speakers) of its local spoken French, and the Battle of Tours in 732. It is also the site of the Paris–Tours road bicycle race. Tours is the largest city in the Centre region of France, although it is not the regional capital, which is the region's second-largest city, Orléans.

    Limes Farm is nestled in the heart of Farthinghoe village between Brackley and Banbury. The farm has been in our family for nearly 200 years and we are passionate about keeping old farming traditions alive.

    We believe it is this philosophy that makes Limes Farm products very special and we hope you will too. Our farm shop and tearoom is open 9am-5pm Tuesday to Saturday and 10am-5pm Sundays – we look forward to seeing you.

    Our beautiful shop and tearoom is located within our converted medieval barn just inside the entrance to the farm.

    The shop sells our delicious homemade produce including our famous jams and chutneys, sweet and savoury tarts and cakes, homemade meat pies and other ‘ready to go’ homemade meals! We also have fresh produce including fruit and vegetables, salad, milk and eggs and freshly baked bread...

    Limes Farm is also delighted to showcase other local food and drink heroes in our shop and we stock a range of delightful treats from local speciality suppliers such as Brackely Wines, Plush Chocolates, Wessex Mill Flour and many more...

    We also have lots of locally made gifts, cards and other home wares and a selection of art from local artists and galleries.

    Within the farm shop is our tearoom where you can enjoy a pot of tea or speciality coffee and a slice of our award-winning cake. We have free Wi-Fi available for our tearoom customers so you can catch up on your emails and surf the internet.

    The Limes Farm tearoom menu will change on a seasonal basis as we adapt to the produce available locally and what is ready on the farm.

    We all use personal finance and most of us are borrowers too. Zero-credit formed as co-operative in August 2010 to trade in research and development for personal finance, so that borrowers can have a say in financial products and services. We believe in consumers and professionals making informed choices together.

    Zero Credit work with very little money, investing every penny of profit in creditfree tools for visitors to their site. It costs £1 to own a share in our coop. All we ask is that you are aged 16 or over and have personal experience of borrowing. This gives you a say in our work, whether that's running it, or contributing to it, as staff or volunteer.

    If you thought your only two options were to either queue up to send your parcel or pay over the odds for door-to-door couriers then think again. P4D | Parcels for Delivery works in partnership with the major courier services companies such as Parcel Force, Citylink, TNT and Yodel to offer you heavily discounted parcel delivery and pallet delivery.

    Courier services need not cost the earth! You can even carbon offset your delivery. No need to queue for your large parcel delivery, you can book online with P4D.

    If you ship thousands of parcels every month you’ll get a great rate with the couriers direct. If you don’t, booking a parcel delivery can be a real headache and pallet delivery will be expensive. That’s where we come in. As a whole we ship thousands of parcels every month and so get cheaper rates; this is what we pass on to you.

    Parcels are collected from your door. We are experts in parcel delivery courier services.
    Because we’re also a software company, we want to make it as quick and easy as possible for you to book with our partner couriers.

    The feedback we get most often is how easy our website is to use, whether you’re booking one parcel delivery or many in one go. The second piece of feedback we get regularly is how good our customer service is.

    The East Oxford Farmers' & Community Market is a small, friendly local market which can provide the staples for your weekly shop, all from sources within 30 miles of Oxford: bread, eggs, milk, vegetables, cheese, various meats, refills for cleaning supplies - as well as a range of other products such as jewellery, clothing and secondhand books.

    It has been running since August 2006, and is a non-profit making organisation, run by a committee and a group of volunteers.

    We are passionate about the market and what it sells. We actively source food from within 30 miles of Oxford and encourage community stalls run by local residents. We also offer Fairtrade produce from further afield and try to make sure it comes to us by land or ship. Further details are available in our Market Manifesto.

    The market has a cafe which runs each week selling delicious breakfasts, lunches, cakes and fair-trade teas and coffee. This is a lovely place to meet up and take a break from shopping.

    Head down Cowley Road until you reach Tesco, and we are at the East Oxford Primary School directly behind the car park.
