Our last issue of the year is packed with ideas for Christmas treats, gifts and celebrations. What’s more, they are on your doorstep – and you have the added satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting local businesses when you buy from our advertisers. So, before you brave the shops, have a look through the magazine for ideas and in particular take a look at the great range of suggestions for Christmas gifts.
As always the What’s On pages are full of local activities and events to enjoy, so do support these if you can. Whatever you do and wherever you go, the team at The Village Emporium wishes you a very Happy Christmas.
