I am delighted to announce the happy winner of the Zero Waste Lockdown Hamper competition: Claire!
The Hamper was delivered by Gary from The Car Free Guide today, and Claire was so happy to receive it! And what wonderful weather for delivery by bike and a photo!
I just met Gary and took delivery of this beautiful hamper. I’m absolutely over the moon, it’s just the most lovely thing ever! Thank you so much for organising it all and I truly feel so blessed to have been lucky enough to have won it!
Congratulations Claire! We look forward to hearing about your journey to Zero Waste living, and what you think of the products – ENJOY! (and do let us know when you do the cycle tour of Chester!)

These are the wonderful Northwich Businesses who have contributed to the Survival Hamper!
Abda’s Coffee Shop
I’m sure most of my local readers have visited Abda’s in Northwich, but for those who have not, this is my favourite place to sit down and relax with friends, family or even business contacts! Abda’s delightful team will provide you with a great tea / coﬀee from around the world alongside delicious meals / cakes in a fun and comfortable environment.
Crafty Stitches is a little haven of surprise and it is a surprise to all as to where all their stock fits! They have a fantastic range of wools, sewing and knitting accessories, along with cross stitch and tapestry kits, enough to cover everyone’s lockdown needs and beyond. Their current wool range includes the Stylecraft Naturals (bamboo & cotton) range – and a range of patterns to go with this!

Ginger & Browns / Innoscent Spa
Ginger & Browns
Ginger & Browns are a specialist pet shop based in the Blakemere Village, Northwich. They aim to enhance your relationship you have with your cats, dogs and wildlife, by using their knowledge to offer you products which are hand selected for your requirements. All products are of the highest quality, ethical and are sourced from the UK.
Their Innoscent Spa, located next to them, is an extension of this ethos, combining behavioural knowledge, access to some of the best, natural, hand made, cruelty free soaps, shampoos and balms available on the market, and a grooming facility that revolves around the dogs using it, and nothing else.

- Body Cleansing and Nourishing Bars
- Shampoo & Conditioning Bars
- Body Creams
- Lip Balms
- Bath Salts
- Face Masks
- Bathroom Accessories
All of these are available in recycled packaging or “Naked” to help reduce your impact on the environment!
