From Neil, Shops Manager,

‘Hello! Once again this year we excitedly will be heading to the Meadows Festival, which takes place annually and is the largest volunteer run Festival in the UK!

Last year we made over £500 for Birthlink and this year we are going to beat it!

We will be selling a huge selection of clothes and books almost every item will be £1 each, you’ll be sure to find a bargain. We’ll also be running a couple of competitions; you can win a ridiculous amount of sweets and some toothpaste!

Come rain or shine bargains will be had, come say hello, bring some cake, have a chat, you can even help out! Last year was CHAOS, in the best possible way, so it can be a wee bit all hands to the deck, but that’s what makes our shops so unique, and so much fun!’
