Shake off those winter doldrums! Spring is on its way.
This spring make The Village Emporium your first port of call to look for tried and trusted local plumbers, electricians, roofers, builders and a whole range of garden services to assist you. Please don't forget to tell people where you saw their ad!
Have a look at our What's on pages for some ideas on how to spend your leisure time, and be sure to visit one of the lovely pubs, restaurants and tea rooms in the Out and about section. Try somewhere new this spring!
Our competition this issue gives you the opportunity to win a delicious afternoon tea for two at the ever-popular Braxted Bakery – well worth a visit at any time of year.
Please keep sending us your stories and photos from our region, whether it be a business, charity, community group or individual achievement.
