Well done everyone and thank you to the Parkinson family for hosting another fabulous event!

UPDATE – Stir Up Zoom! at 4 pm on Sunday 22nd November 2020

There’s still just enough time to take part in this year’s special Christmas Pudding Stir Up Zoom gathering, taking place at 4 pm this Sunday afternoon!
Hosted by Alice in her kitchen; those who’ve already ordered and received their ingredients boxes will also be stirring up their puddings at the same time from their own homes.  Everyone will be using Shirley’s special St Anne’s Pudding recipe, the one we’ve been enjoying for 5 years now!

Two options still exist

  1. order your pudding pre-mixed by Alice on Sunday for delivery / collection middle of next week
  2. gather the ingredients for yourself – email us and we will send you the list

Pre-mixed puddings will arrive in plastic pouch bags (for filling your own basin at home), with greaseproof paper and cloth for steaming and will cost 

  • £5 small (1/2lb – 2-3 people)
  • £10 medium (1lb – 4 – 6 people)
  • £15 large (1and a 1/2lb – 8-10 people)

The deadline for ordering a pre-mixed pudding is Sunday 22nd NovemberEmail – [email protected] to book in (this is also how you will receive your Zoom Invitation on Sunday).

Please let us know as soon as you can, so we can plan things and help out as much as we can beforehand, we’re looking forward to hearing from you!

Since this year we are unable to mix our Christmas Puddings together as in previous years; we’ve decided host an ‘online Stir Up’.

The online Sunday service will happen at 11am, but in addition to this ….later in the afternoon at 4pm we will host a Zoom call (led by Alice from the kitchen at home). This means everyone can watch and, ideally – participate by making puddings of your own, same time at home.

Options …

1 – We prepare and provide the ingredients for your size of pudding in a packaged box, by delivery to your doorstep or for collection Thurs 19/11. This is our preferred option – it means the majority of people will then be participating – which is mainly the point.
2 – For those who do not wish to make the pudding themselves but would still like one, we will make extra pudding, have it ready for steaming (as in previous years) for delivery or collection in the week following 22/11.
3 – You source ingredients of your own (we would share the list with you beforehand)Whichever option you choose, we will send you with an invitation to our Zoom Call so you can watch and be with everyone as we make the puddings. And if anyone would like assistance with this, we’d be happy to help beforehand (for those who maybe haven’t experienced it, Zoom is genuinely straightforward and just requires internet access).

How to Order…you need your own bowl prices as follows (same price whether you want the ingredients or a pre-mixed pudding)

Small bowl (serves 2 / about 1/2lb) – £5
Medium bowl (serves 4-6 / about 1lb) – £10
Large bowl (serves 8-10 / about 1 and a 1/2lb) – £15

Pay on delivery or collection of ingredients – we’ll tailor this and be flexible to stay safe you will still need to do the steaming and preparation beyond the initial mixing.

Deadline for booking an Ingredients Box – Tuesday 17th November – anything later than this and we’d be struggling to package and deliver by Thursday (allows 72 hrs clearance before unpacking on Sunday)

The deadline for ordering pre-mixed pudding is anything up to the day itself – so Sunday 22nd November. All orders & questions via email – as soon as possible to [email protected] look forward to hearing from you soon.
