Picnics prepared for you at Cheese Etc
If you are planning a picnic outing then the new Uckfield cheesemonger Cheese Etc might be able to help you.
The shop is planning to put supplies together in returnable cool bags. They can include bread, charcuterie, cheese, pickles and the napkins and plastic cutlery you will need to enjoy your feast.
One of the windows is to be decorated this month on a picnic theme.
Gift hampers are also available at Cheese Etc. You can choose your own cheese or specify your budget and the shop will choose for you. You can even say whether you would like cheese from cow, sheep or goat and have chutneys and cheese crackers added.
Cheese Etc will also be doing hampers for Christmas in green boxes with green stuffing and with special tags where people can write their messages.
