6 O’Clock gins

6 O’Clock Gin

6 O’clock Gin is a range of strikingly smooth artisan gins, handcrafted in small batches, using traditional skills and only the best natural ingredients. The brand includes London Dry 43% Gin, Brunel 50% Gin, Sloe 26% Gin and Damson 40% Gin.

The name was inspired by Bramley & Gage’s long-held family tradition of indulging in a G&T at 6 o’clock; a custom still enjoyed at the distillery and shared by gin-lovers all over the world.

 
 Hussingtree Gins

Hussingtree Gins

Hussingtree Gin

Hussingtree Gin is owned and run by three gin loving family members – husband and wife Richard and Elaine, and Duncan, Elaine’s son. 

The brand takes its name from the village where Elaine and Richard live – Martin Hussingtree, just north of Worcester.

The name reflects both their heritage and one of their core values - the importance of ‘local’. Each of the distilled gins is inspired by the produce of Worcestershire. Working with like-minded local businesses is at the heart of everything we do.

PISTON GIN: BUILT BY HAND

What does it mean to build something? A house; a business; a gin?

PISTON Distillery was founded in 2018 by Nick Weatherall, by trade a builder, who became so fascinated by the story of gin that he was compelled to create his own.

And so he started by building a distillery, in part of the shell of the old Royal Worcester porcelain works. Nick and his team have brought new life to this abandoned and near-derelict historic site – today the Piston Distillery is vibrant and busy with the sounds and smells of twenty-first century, hand-crafted industry as our signature Piston Gin is built, botanical by botanical.

 
 Sly Gins

Sly Gins

SLY Gin

A COTTAGE MICRO-DISTILLERY IN THE HEART OF HEREFORDSHIRE

They started the distillery in late 2015, and launched our first gins in Summer 2016.

Their Lemon Verbena gin quickly became a favourite and won 'Best Signature Botanical Gin' at the Craft Distilling Expo in the same year!Sly Gin is created by hand in incredibly small batches using herbs from their Herefordshire garden combined with traditional botanicals and craftily distilled in grain spirit at low temperatures to capture all the bright fresh flavours. 

It’s finally blended with naturally pure Holywell Malvern spring water to create a very special gin.

Good Neighbour Scheme

The Suckley Good Neighbour Scheme (GNS) is available to residents of Suckley and can be accessed Monday to Friday , 09:00 to 17:00 by calling 01886 840 480.

The GNS is a local and friendly scheme staffed by Suckley volunteers who will try to help if someone needs assistance. This could be for anything, from changing a light bulb, collecting shopping, form filing, one-off help with gardening or just advice.

In addition, several Suckley volunteers have been trained by South Worcestershire Citizens Advice as Community Liaison Volunteers (CLVs) in order to bring to more rural areas friendly, impartial and confidential access to CA's experienced advice. 

Enquiries may be broad, ranging through issues such as benefits, consumer advice, debt problems, disability, employment and housing, and much, much more.

This service is entirely confidential and all Suckley volunteers have been screened by the Disclosure and Baring Service.

Access to CLVs is via the same telephone number, 01886 840 480, and they act as a first point of access to advice from Citizens Advice. A CLV is also available from 10:00 to 12:00 noon every Friday morning at Knightwick Surgery.

If preferred, you can access the Citizens Advice website at www.advicenetworkworcestershire.org.uk and email your enquiry direct to CA. Alternatively, ring 01684 563 611 betwen 10:00 and 16:00 any weekday except Wednesday to speak to an adviser.

 

Please call us on 01886 840 480

We're here to help. Please get in touch.

Suckley Newsletter

"The first free Suckley newsletter since 2003 was delivered (on paper) in October 2010 to all residents. The idea comes from the Suckley Community Plan, formulated earlier in 2010, and aims to support the local community by publicising local parish activities and community run projects.

"The newsletter features local activities, events and issues, useful information and points of contact, as well as offering opportunities for local businesses to advertise. It gives Suckley residents an additional way to find out what's going on locally and to get involved in community run projects and activities."

The above information is kindly supplied by suckley.net

The newsletter was last published in December 2015, but is now out of print due to lack of resource to compile and edit it. If you think you have the time and the skills to revitalise this important local service, please contact us at the Post Office.

Previous issues are available for download in PDF format and listed below. Click on a month and the corresponding newsletter will open in a new window. If the newsletter does not show, you may need to download a PDF viewer such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is available here.
