Reduce your Christmas stress . . . Be an 'early bird' this year

Here at G.N. Badley & Sons, our energetic elves are already working tirelessly behind the scenes to make your Christmas wishes come true.

But we want to be up front with you . . . there’s a very good chance that things are likely to be a little bit different this year.

Even Santa and his fleet-footed reindeer can’t guarantee to solve the supply chain issues which are causing problems all around the world right now as a direct result of the pandemic.

Will they be solved in time for Christmas? Who knows. Anyone who tells you they can give a 100% promise there will be no delays in the run-up to Christmas is, quite frankly, pulling the wool over your eyes.

That’s why we’re recommending that it might be worth taking a more cautious approach this year, and not leaving it until the very last minute to collect your meat feast for the festive table.

Yes, of course we will be open as usual in the run-up to Christmas shutdown if you do want to stick to the normal routine – but we’re urging customers to seriously consider being an ‘early bird’ with their turkeys this year, buying early to reduce stress and avoid the risk of disappointment.

So, our Christmas meat shop is already open for business, with a product range which will be growing steadily over the next few weeks.

Already, you’ll find mouthwatering options such as:

If you’re not quite in Christmas mode yet (and let’s face it, we’re not even half way through November, are we!), there’s plenty of other highlights in store to tempt you.

For example, have you sampled the official ‘Telford Sausage’ yet? Voted on by the public in a taste test which we held in Southwater as part of Telford Sausage Week, the pork leek and stilton recipe was top of the polls.

We’ve got a great online offer running at the moment where you can save well over 20% - check this out:

The pork jalapeno and honey recipe came a very close second in the competition – and we’ve got similar special offers available on this one too.

And if it’s a traditional, tried-and-tested winter warmer you are looking for, this is the perfect time for a pasty, or pastry. Check out our home-made selection:

Thank you for your support, which is hugely appreciated and never taken for granted. We look forward to seeing you in store soon – maybe even planning that little bit further ahead for Christmas than usual this year…?
