Rod Hull Quiz Trail Herne Bay

Here’s a super story from our NEW Quiz Trail in Sittingbourne!

Mad-cap Rod Hull and Emu moved back to the UK from Australia in 1971. Rod had been born on the Isle of Sheppey in 1935. He’d married Sandra, also from this area, in 1958 and they’d had two daughters together.

In 1971 the marriage ended, and he had a romance with Cher - who was also married at the time. Rod and Cher … and Emu … set up home in Milstead Manor, Sittingbourne and lived there until 1986. They went on to marry and have three children. Rod was now a millionaire - he’d been booked by Princess Diana to perform at Prince William’s fourth birthday party - times were good. The couple moved to Rochester and bought Restoration House - a move which ended in bankruptcy.

He eventually lived in the Winchelsea area. On March 17th 1999, Rod’s life ended when he’d climbed on to his roof to adjust his TV arial and sadly fell. He was aged sixty-three.

Wooden spoon Autumn Orange

Wooden Spoon Autumn Orange

With Summer an almost distant memory and Winter fast drawing in, the team at The Wooden Spoon are often in need of a warmup to take the chill off and a cosy up in front of the fire. We don’t share a blanket anymore due to social distancing but we still love a steaming cup of the Wooden Spoon winter warmer.

All you need is some hot water, a bag of English breakfast tea and the Stud Orange & Brandy from our amazing Weck jar range of bottled fruits. Just slice the orange and add it into your mug, along with a healthy slug of the brandy and a few cloves. Then add the teabag and pour in the hot water. When that’s done, just leave it to infuse for a few minutes then enjoy the taste of Autumn in a mug.
