Annual Mortlake Summer Fair, Saturday, June 24th at the Stag Brewery playing fields in Mortlake.

A little bit of background on the fair:

Quoted by one of the parents from St Mary Magdalen’s school

Organised by the parents of St Mary Magdalen’s Catholic Primary School in conjunction with the Mortlake Community Association, the Fair is a popular family event that attracts approximately 2,500 visitors and brings together the local community for a day of fun and camaraderie.   As well as being great fun it is also the chief fund-raiser for our school and as a result of the recent cutbacks (approximately £150 per child) it is more important than ever that this year’s Summer Fair is a success.

One of our main goals this year is to raise enough money to purchase an additional 16 iPads so that eventually EVERY child within our school has access to an iPad providing an invaluable resource for learning. In addition to this we hope to raise the money to fund the Easy Grass needed for an area at the back of the school used by the Reception Children so that this space can be used to its full potential in all weather conditions. Due to the popularity of the fair and the support we have received in the past we believe that the above is achievable.

Come and join one of your local fairs, here you will find:

  • Live music from The Grateful Dads, Jade & Kyle Stanger, music theater singers Genevieve & Elisa and a Choir from St. Mary Magdalen’s mini-singers.
  • Enjoy delicious food and drink available from the BBQ.
  • “The Mortlake Market” with arts and crafts, vintage, artisan, homewares & fresh products from local business and charities.
  • We will also have raffle prizes, Punch and Judy, beautiful performances by The little dancer’s school of dance, The Manton School of Irish Dancers, The St. Mary Magdalen’s Zumba Dance Crew,
  • The Pee Wee kid’s Karate demonstration, bouncy castle and children’s games.”

Organic Marley Coffee Hits East Sheen & My Taste Buds!

Organic Marley Coffee Hits East Sheen & My Taste Buds!

I confess I am a bit of a coffee lover and have trawled in and out of the many coffee shops in East Sheen, all catering to different taste buds and budgets.

Today I happened to wander in to my favourite Health Food Shop, Apples & Bees, to stock up on my usual medicinal cabinet requirements to fight off the usual colds and bugs that my children seem to share and or pick up when I smelled that lovely aroma, the coffee bean.

I was surprised to find out that as of today they started to offer coffee.

Not any old coffee, but ORGANIC COFFEE & better still Marley coffee.

Read the little bit below for a small snippet before continuing on to my experience!

Marley Coffee

Marley Coffee

In 1999, Rohan Marley, son of the legendary and beloved musician Bob Marley, purchased a 52-acre farm in Chepstowe, Portland, Jamaica, an area where the Blue Mountains are known for its idyllic coffee growing climate. At the time, Rohan had little knowledge of the invaluable soil and growing conditions that the farm held; just a desire return to the earth, fulfill his father’s dream of farming, and help support the local economy in Jamaica.

So I am a latte drinker, but was persuaded to try it black!   Oh crickey..I wasn’t really prepared for this, feeling very weary and still needing to wake up, I watched with fascination as this coffee was made with precision and time, it was like a ritual and art in the making.

I relented and tried a bit black, oh boy, my eyes popped, my tongue curled, but I definitely woke up.  I chickened out and added my milk and one sugar and my taste buds could then savour the latte that I am used to and it was truly delicious.  The slightly bitter lingering taste afterwards stayed for at least half an hour.

So if you are coffee lover, why not give it a go, variety is the spice of life after all.

You will find Apples and Bees here: 107 Sheen Lane SW14 8AE
