Updated: Feb 10
We’ve made it through January and we’re all looking forward to spending more time outside of our own four walls. The continuation of Lockdown orders is keeping us at a distance from those we love to spend time with but that doesn’t mean we can’t still put a smile on somebody’s face and show someone special we care.
What better way to show we care than ordering something tasty and locally made to eat, share together or even just to treat yourself! Valentine’s Day is drawing near but it’s not exclusively just for couples - it’s a great chance to show anyone special in your life that you care. Why not surprise someone with some delightful delicacies this weekend (or any weekend in fact – we don’t need to just adhere to a yearly calendar date for a random act of kindness!)
We know that the locations of Croyde and Georgeham are notoriously tricky for getting food delivered, but we’ve made it super easy by pulling together some little gems who either operate within our Parish or offer delivery here! As always, we may well have missed someone off the list but all you need to do is send us a note and we will happily add them on!)
Should you decide St Valentine’s Day is the perfect reason to splash out on the love-o-meter – we’ve included some Valentine’s Day special offers** to inspire your taste buds!
