We’re enjoying some Christmas advent activity over on facebook – come and join in! We have had lots of great ideas on how to re-use Mackie’s ice cream tubs as part of the Christmas celebrations – for example one of our Friends of Mackie’s – Adam, told us that he fills a Mackie’s tub with some little golden treats to create a gift “pot of gold”! That inspired many other lovely ideas – most popular one was to fill with home made treats like tablet and fudge to make a nice teacher’s gift .
We are going to be Country Living Christmas Fair at the SECC Glasgow– starts Thursday 20th through to Sunday 23rd November. Come and see us - It’s a lovely show and a fun day out – and a great chance to start getting into the Christmas spirit! Cathie’s Christmas offer is a selection of our chocolate bars gift wrapped into packs of 4 - a nice little stocking filler! We are looking forward to it -
