Seven things you can do to help while you are here

3         Reduce, reuse and recycle - 
         Try to avoid overly packaged goods and say no to that extra carrier bag ………....
           Why not use our re-usable shopping bags while you are here.
           To recycle any waste that you have. You can use the recycling box on the landing then we can dispose of it responsibly.

           Use local products, they give you a flavour of the area and help to support local communities.            We are fortunate to have some fantastic producers of food, drink and arts and crafts in our region. We sell locally produced jam, marmalade and honey.
