Cookie Helps The Bumblebees – August 21

Lynda Stewart and family adopted Buttercup and Cookie, the Guinea Pigs. Lynda then decided she would write a children’s book about their antics. ” Who’s In My Bowl?” is a delightful story with fantastic illustrations all penned by Lynda.

During lockdown in 2020, Lynda decided to write a second book for children aged 4-9 to help them learn about the value of Bumblebees, with the help of Cookie.  All the information is accurate with help from the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.

If you would like to buy a copy of the books please visit Lynda’s website:-

Parkstone Shop – Now CLOSED

Parkstone Shop 

Thank you to all our loyal customers.  We have had some good times but recently the shop has seen a downturn in sales and the Covid-19 pandemic has obviously not helped, hence the decision we have made.  Talking with the staff we came up with a few new initiatives and tried these until the end of the year.  Unfortunately these ideas were not enough to show that there was a future for the shop so sadly we have closed permanently.  As we head into the New Year in tier 4 we can only hope that our Turbary Road, Ferndown shop remains viable.…read more
