Transcription of article


The Littleton & Badsey Growers, Ltd, being anxious that there should be no avoidable waste of fruit, and that the inconvenience caused by a lack of sugar should as far as possible be overcome, has consented to act as a distributing agency in the district. They have therefore placed a large order for bottles (2lb Kilner pattern) with the Food Production Committee, which they propose to sell out in lots of not less than six bottles at 6s per dozen, to any persons who need them for home use. The process of fruit bottling in these bottles is very simple, the fruit will keep for years if necessary, and the bottles can be used over and over again. They hope that a good number will avail themselves of the opportunity. Further particulars may be obtained of Mr Fred Bubb, secretary and manager, Littleton & Badsey Growers, Ltd, Blackminster, Evesham, to whom orders for bottles, accompanied by cash, should be given.
