Welcome; Edition 133 Out Now!

Dear Readers,

I must say, we have some fantastic markets on the Island! There is a wealth of different stalls to have a look at, lots of beautifully made products at a reasonable price. So if you are looking for a special gift, you need to check these markets out! I think I need to show a bit more self-control when it comes to buying plants though, my outdoor area is beginning to look like a jungle!

As you are aware, we are celebrating St Valentine’s Day this Sunday.

I believe this day is not only for lovers, it should be a day to show how much you love and appreciate ALL the special people in your life. We have some great ideas in this edition for Valentine’s Day, whether you are dining out or eating in, we have you covered!

Our competitions have been very well received, with lots of entries coming in. We will be running these once a month so continue to look out for them and pop your entries in! I know we have been a bit hard to find, but we will be having our new shopfront put in shortly so you will find us easily.

We hope you all have a fantastic fortnight and spread the love on Sunday!!!

Until next time.

Take care, Stay safe,

-Cherrie
