We always order our turkey from Barkaways butchers (http://www.ajbarkaway.co.uk/) in Faversham because it's always amazing. Now we always go to pick it up, but I got confused and thought we were picking it up tomorrow (24th) and they're closed tomorrow. They went and delivered it today because the turkey is so important for Christmas and so they brought it round for us because it would be awful if we didn't have it.
They are utterly wonderful. It could have been a total disaster, but they are local and brilliant and we have a turkey. If there was any other reason for going with local family firms I don't know what it could be.
