“Will the Plastic Packaging Tax affect us?”

On April 1st of this year, a new tax will be applied to plastics-based packaging, meaning that companies who import or manufacture plastic and polythene packaging have a duty to make sure it is either made from 30%+ recycled materials, or pay a significant tax per tonne.

FAQs – what you’re asking us in 2022

Dates for you diary – Christmas 2021

Every year I apologise for this post, feeling it’s a bit early for talk of the C word, but here we are again! As it’s a mere 52 days, and only seven shopping Saturdays, until the day itself we should probably give it a thought… As usual we will be closing for the Christmas holidays […]

Things we’ve learnt in 2021

Well, we said it last year and we’ll say it again – it’s been a funny old year! With the after-effects of the pandemic rippling through life even now, lots has changed. If we could have jumped forward from October 2019 and seen the world, and even Jones & Cane, in October 2021, I wonder […]

Agricultural […]

Strawberry season – punnets in stock for every fruit!

After months of blogs about masks and restrictions and closed doors, my goodness it’s nice to just be thinking about strawberries!
