The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who sadly passed away on 31st July 2011. She will be greatly missed.
A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies is now available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint on firstname.lastname@example.org. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.
Description: The plum is a fruit with a stone. Plums may be red to deep purple in colour. Gages are more likely to be yellow to green. Traditionally, when plums or similar fruits are eaten, the stones are laid around the side of the dish and then there is the excitement of counting up "Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief" to find out who you will marry.
