Happy New Year. Yes we are back from our winter break. We will reopen on the 10th. February at 11am. We look forward to seeing all our old customers & also , we hope lots of new customers… Check out our website for daily opening times, as until Easter we open usually just the weekends due to the weather still being a little cold. Linda & I are delicate souls & hate getting cold...
