Hello March 2024

Wednesday Feb 28, 2024

March is here! Daffodils are starting to blossom and the first signs of Spring are appearing, along with the odd rain shower. But not to worry, you can pick up an umbrella in one of our food stores or the Quadrant.

What are you most looking forward to about Spring? At Chelmsford Star Co-operative we’re looking forward to getting out and about more and enjoying the lighter weather. It might be time for a wardrobe revamp to welcome in the transitional months, as those winter coats start to become a bit too toasty. Our fashion team at Quadrant will give you a hand picking out this season’s trends and practical clothing, shoes and accessories.

With plenty of events happening this month including International Women’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Mother’s Day and Easter at the end of the month – it’s an exciting time for all. Our Brambles restaurant at Chelmsford and Braintree Quadrant will be hosting their fortnightly member’s coffee mornings, kicking off with a visit from Essex Dementia Care and, later in the month, Steve Scruton will be joining us to celebrate 60 years of Pirate Radio.

The best thing about Easter? Easter eggs. Our food stores stock a wide range of chocolatey favourites for the whole family. And why not try our Irresistible hot cross buns? With some adventurous flavours including Chocolate and Orange and Blueberry and Lemon – mix up your traditional favourite for a delicious treat, ready to eat or toasted.

Feeling an interior refresh? Our homewares department have some brand new lines including the Bridgerton by Catherine Lansfield bedding collection. Bask in floral and regent patterns in butterscotch yellow and teal blue – perfect for Spring.

Mother’s Day is on 10th March this year, so why not treat your loved ones to a gift from Quadrant. From accessories to homewares, there’s plenty of trinkets to surprise them with. Our favourites are these Sam Toft prints – available on the 1st floor in the home section. Thoughtful and unique – these gorgeous little prints will make the perfect sentimental Mother’s Day present.
