Gallones was great

Gallones, July 16-w500-h500Twenty two members thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Gallones in Adam & Eve Street last night.  We enjoyed a short talk on the history of the company which dates back to 1895, through to its recent, successful venture into franchising, of which the Market Harborough parlour was its pilot.

We found out about how ice cream is made and the amazing range of flavours, before getting to try some.  The salted caramel, their most popular flavour, was delicious.

 

 

Dairy Farm Visit – last chance to book tonight

The next social event is for the Dairy Farm Visit which is on 7th May 2014.  It begins at 7pm and finishes around 9pm with refreshments. There is a walk up the fields to see the cows grazing etc, and then around the farm buildings to see the baby calves and the milking parlour. Jane would recommend wellingtons, as there’s always plenty of cow poo about!   It is £5 per person payable at tonight’s monthly meeting.

The postcode for SatNav’s is LE14 2PS. Plenty of car parking in the farmyard which is right at the end of Church Lane.
