Creative Colonies 2020 ~ online ~ November 15th-30th

Stephen Howard Harrison’s painting of Reid Terrace
Elke’s paper angels

Our popular annual November event, Creative Colonies is happening, thanks to our loyal enthusiastic resident creatives!  We’ve adapted to the world of ‘click and collect’ so as to adhere to current restrictions but what better way to support our own community than to buy truly locally? As always, it’s the ideal opportunity to find unique gifts for nearest and dearest – and you can probably justify treating yourself too!
