Local Christmas Cheer

Ho! Ho! Ho! It is the Festive Season and our local business are alive with a special Christmas spirit, so now is the ideal time to make Christmas shopping a joy by shopping locally for all your special gifts, unique and handcrafted items as well as wide range of staple Christmas goods.

With so many shops full of good cheer, festive music, baubles, banners and lights, it is enlightening to look back at the Christmas store decorations and window displays that were such a feature of shops of earlier days.
