Customer Recommendation for

Your Shop at the Show





 The Shop at the Beautiful Days Music Festival 2017


Once again the Shop was invited to be at the Beautiful Days Music Festival in Escot park and it was a huge success, in no small part due to the wonderful voluntary helpers. The annual event brings much needed funds to the shop - probably quite a lot of fun for the helpers too ! Huge thanks are deserved by all those who help in this annual visit to the show.
