SUMMER ICE CREAM & STAMPS - ALL AT THE POST OFFICE! As the summer heat rolls on and on, we cannot believe our luck, with Malvern temperatures often higher than overseas resorts. Now's the time for an ice cream!

Sara and Nigel Morris, your hosts at Great Malvern Post Office / Thorntons are offering free chocolate sticks and chocolate sauce with their delicious ice creams - make sure you quote the 'Great Malvern Weekender' when you order your ice cream to get them!

BOOK AHEAD for your LOVE of LOCAL PRODUCE! Malvern's Abbey Road Farmers market returns on Saturday 21 August so make a note in your diaries! Coffees available at the Great Malvern Deli and Pepper & Oz alongside the market in Abbey Road

AS GREAT MALVERN BECOMES THE BOUTIQUE CAPITAL OF WORCESTERSHIRE can you bag a handbag on the cheap? Well as the summer sales take off why not pop down to ISIS Boutique alongside ANUPAM, Malvern's leading Indian Restaurant on Church Street.

INVESTORS - Is it a good time to buy a hotel? Well, clearly national pub/hotel chain Weatherspoons think so as they plan the refurbishment of the Foley Hotel. Promising early breakfasts and more than twenty ensuite rooms the re-opening of this landmark property will do much to restore the town's accommodation capacity - let us hope the sad and derelict Tudor Hotel is injected with some much needed investment too!

FILM and THEATRE For all the latest see the theatre web site here Have a great week and weekend in Great Malvern!
