Updates 3rd July 2020

The show must go on

It’s fair to say that so far 2020 has not been the greatest year. At Christmas we learned that our beautiful Lola had Lymphoma, in January she leapt the rainbow bridge leaving a massive hole in our hearts. She came into our lives like a tornado and left us devastated and wrecked. We all miss her greatly but she’ll always be with us.

‘Run free beautiful girl.’

Covi 19 has affected us all in one way or another and if closing down for a few months is the hardest we are hit we’ll take that. Our thoughts go out to all those that have lost loved ones, friends or colleagues.

Apart from giving us chance to give the garden a long overdue makeover the break has allowed us to re-evaluate our plan for the shop and where we go from here. We’ve taken the opportunity to source new suppliers, given the shop a freshen up and come back with a renewed vigour. We are well aware that shopping habits may change for the foreseeable and it may take some time for confidence to come back so we are working hard behind the scenes to update the website and make as much as we can available for you. The shop is open but for now we’ve decided to limit opening to Thursday to Saturday 10am-4pm. We know this may make things tricky for some of you so if there is something you want that isn’t yet on the website please contact us via phone, email, instagram or Facebook and we’ll do our best to get it to you.

I’m sure this will end and we can all get back to whatever the normal will be. Take care and we hope to see you soon.
