The Combe Grove Cup – Made in the UK
Members of the marketing team have worked hard to ensure that they find the perfect cup that is both sustainable and durable for all of your activities. Whether you are grabbing a warm and nutritious soup from The Caff after a morning run, or filling it with your favourite herbal tea, you can be sure that these Circular & Co cups encompass all of Combe Groves philosophies. Made sustainably in the South West of England.
Created from recycled single-use paper cups, the Combe Grove Cup is specifically designed to support a busy lifestyle. This sustainable travel mug is 100% leakproof with a simple push mechanism to both minimise spills and offer one-handed opening.
Made to last for 5 years use the cup is designed to replace the familiar paper takeaway cup for hot drinks on the go, and as if you needed further encouragement to get yourself one, if you use your Combe Grove Cup to buy your regular hot drink at The Caff you will receive a 10p discount each time.
Dishwasher safe, insulated and 100% recyclable at the end of its useful life.
For a limited time only, members of The Club can pick up a Combe Grove Circular & Co cup for just £6.50 (RRP: £12.95).

Annabel Trechmann bio
The Beetroot illustrations used for our new wrapping paper and veggie bags were painted using watercolours in 2014 by talented local artist, Annabel Trechmann, who has lived in the Bath area since 1985.
Annabel is a member of the Bath Society of Botanical Artists (BSBA), a thriving society with the aim of promoting an interest in botanical art and developing skills in all forms of botanical illustration. The BSBA holds an exhibition every other year and from the 2014 theme of vegetables, Combe Grove has adopted this wonderful beetroot illustration.
Annabel, who has been painting since school, was brought up in East Africa until the age of 12, after which time she moved back to England. Whilst homeschooling in Africa Annabel found she could draw and paint plants from nature. She recalls that she had a notebook with text on one side and clear paper on the other and after bringing back treasures from nature, she would draw them, filling up the clear side and giving her much pleasure in the process. This interest continued when Annabel moved back to England and settled in The Quantocks, Somerset, where she found herself even more excited by the English flowers and plants and particularly spring flowers. Her botanical drawings blossomed in this rural idyl where she lived with no electricity, thriving amongst nature with the freedom to roam the hills and paint at leisure.
Annabel will be creating more illustrations of our nutritious vegetables as the seasons change.
