This list was very kindly contributed by Peter BC.
Now this is beyond the banalities of the regular supermarket trolley. This list was found in a church!
Peter says he was moving the altar in a small church in Lincolnshire last Sunday when he found this shopping list.
What can we say:
Written on the back of an envelope which originally came from Mole Country Stores in Devon:
Mole Valley Farmers Ltd
The list was written in red pen – maybe a teacher?
The handwriting is neat and formal, probably that of an older person. The slight shakiness might reinforce this point of view. Maybe a retired teacher.
Marmite, Scotch Eggs, Coleslaw and Cooked Meat.
This are all tea time or picnic ingredients.
Thank you so much to Peter!

Marmite has been on many people’s list this last week, there was a shortage because of the sudden drop in the pound – it appears that this very British item is no longer made in Britain! If the letter was from Mole Valley Farmers Ltd – perhaps this person gets grain delivered, they might have a horse or be a farmer
not many very British items are made in Britain anymore!
hope they weren’t going to Tesco! Crisis averted though, as Tesco stood up to big, bad Unilever and sorted out the pricing
I like to think that this list was lost by a Miss Marple type character whilst sorting out the flowers for church in 1982. The list would not have been for Tesco but rather for the village shop.
Tea or perhaps a picnic? I recently tried Marmite for the first time, as it was not easily available here in the States. All I can say is…..yummo!
Please alter the way you spell ‘altar’.
Many thanks for noticing. Correction made.
