Shop local this Christmas - it’s a great way to connect with your community and give something back after they’ve worked so hard this year to keep our shopping experiences as safe and enjoyable as possible. From delicious foods to lovingly handmade gifts to fitness vouchers, we’ve taken the hassle out of searching online and created a Shopping Local for Christmas Directory.
Below is a compiled list of local independent retailers, shop owners and small businesses who live in the Parish and/or sell their products and services from within the Parish, who have Christmas gifts to offer and share with the community in order to make your Christmas Day all the more special. Scroll through the gallery too to see all the fabulous things on offer, right here where we live!
We will keep updating the list in the run up to Christmas. If you would like to be included email email@example.com with details of your business, or comment on this post with any information or updates on any particular offers your have this Christmas.
