The dates for spring 2019 Sheepshare will be:
Deadline for orders: Friday 21st June 2019
Pick-up: Saturday 6th July 2019
Collection: Between 10am and 11am – you will lose your lamb if it is not collected. If you place an order, we assume you or a friend can collect it then and there.
Uncollected Lamb: We cannot store uncollected quarters and they need to be in a freezer within an hour or so of collection. So if it is not collected it will be given away and there will be no refund.
Place: We have found that most people prefer to collect their share from Sue and Mick Paskins’ house: Yew Tree House 5 B Preston Park Avenue, BN1 6HJ. Click on this for Google Map.
Cars: Easier than Brighthelm. You can park on the road across the drive entrance, and probably, and if quick, on paid for parking on Preston Park Avenue probably without charge.
Buses from and to Central Brighton:
There are 2 bus stops:
- In Stamford Avenue (which is almost on the corner of Preston Park Avenue) heading north east, this covers buses heading TOWARDS Brighton (5, 5A, 270, 271, 272, 273, 17) And the 5 B which is heading OUT of Brighton.
- In Preston Road (still called Stamford Avenue) this covers buses headingOUT of Brighton 5, 5A, 270, 271, 272, 273, 17.
If you come from East or West, that is, Seaford or Worthing for example, we can arrange a more convenient pick-up location. Please let us know by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Bring a bag: The cuts fit into a plastic carrier which is provided, however we recommend bringing your own plastic bag to wrap it in as the joints can leak, and also a big bag to carry them in. The bag can be heavy so you will probably need to go straight home to put it in your fridge or freezer. We recommend doing any other shopping beforehand so you don’t have to carry it around for long.
