Go shopping in our wonderful little town.

Welcome to December - who would have thought we’re nearly at the end of 2020. Phew!

We really hope you’re all doing well and looking forward to whatever Christmas and the New Year might look like.

Well the Christmas lights in Kenilworth are on now - and if you peek through our window you’ll see plenty of festive decorations, holly and ivy and you’ll see we’ve got our Christmas menu ready and raring to go. The mulled wine is primed and ready and Andy has chosen his favourite Christmas songs (and jumpers!)

You know us by now, we’re very much planning for the best and can’t wait to open up - that might be in a couple of weeks (we certainly hope so) but it might be a bit later. One thing is for sure, when we do open our doors again, we’d not only love to see you, we’ll need to.

Along with plenty of other places in Kenilworth, this year has been devastating; closure, uncertainty, very little support, closure again and more disappointment - we know many places are really up against it and I’m sure I speak for lots of fellow local businesses in saying that we all really need your continued support.

So as we wait for happier news about when we can open, I’d encourage you to swipe past Amazon and go shopping in our wonderful little town.

Just up the road there’s The Farthing Gallery, pop over and see Helen and get some Christmas cards and a few stocking fillers and lovely presents for family and friends.

Everyone loves getting flowers, The Orangery will make sure you have something beautiful to take home to loved ones, and whilst you’re there pick up some extra Christmas decorations.

Reading is good for you, and your mental wellbeing, so go on down to Kenilworth Books and choose a present for a loved one that will get read over the festive period.

At Abbey End there’s Kenilworth Pets and Garden Supplies - we always go there for food for our rabbits - if you’ve got green fingers, or even if you haven’t, pop in for some shopping.

Whilst you’re out and about, make sure you grab a coffee from The Forrest, or a drink from Time for Tea or Harringtons, or grab a coffee from Deli on the Hill before your walk round the castle.If you’re this side of the High Street pop across the road to Alexa Lauren and grab a pastry.

We’ve got great town, with some wonderful independents, and there are plenty more that I haven’t mentioned, but we’ll only be here this time next year, or even in a few short months, with your support.

Above all else, look after yourselves in the next couple of weeks, stay safe, stay healthy, follow the rules and do everything safely - and if you can, support the wonderful places that we have in Kenilworth.It’s the only way that we’ll continue to have them.

Take care, very best wishes and we look forward to seeing you all soon,

Jonathan Carter-Morris
