We hope you and your loved ones are all keeping safe.
By now we are all aware of the severity of COVID-19 and probably exhausted from the anxiety of it all. However we think it would be a good time to catch up with you and we do want to pass on some help and advice we have received during this time. To make sure we are doing whatever we can to contain the virus, all events are still cancelled according to government guidelines. But be assured we will keep you fully informed.
We have noticed that some stallholders are offering a delivery or postal service of their goods. Please let us know your details as we would love to get your information out to as many people as possible on our vast database and use our social media strength. We think it is really important to get across that supporting small and local businesses is essential at this time.
