COVID-19 UPDATE: November Lockdown 

The November lockdown news comes as yet another blow for us all, following the last seven months and more recent tightening of restrictions again in Essex. November usually sees our customers and visitors enjoying a leisurely browse around our craft centre shops for their Christmas gifts and a good month of trade for our businesses, sadly not this year!

Thankfully some of our shops are able to continue with their collection service for locals (sorry, but they won’t be allowed to let you inside the shops) and a delivery service for those not able to visit, so do check out their websites and order your supplies and Christmas gifts here:

And Sew On 01376 346532

Sconch Yarn 01376 743123

Instep 01376 323667

Doer Cycles – 07425 923797

Also the Sconch Tearooms will now be offering a takeaway service, so if you’re popping by for a click and collect, or just fancy a treat to keep you going, make sure you pick up your coffee and cake or a bacon sandwich while you’re here! (Hopefully a delivery service will be available too, details to be confirmed.)

Douglas Payne Designs are available here:

Visit Inspiregems Gift Boutique here:

Details of our other shops can be found under the shops tab with all their contact details, if you have any queries, do get in touch with them.

Thank you for all your best wishes for our lovely small, independent businesses here and please continue to support them through this next difficult season.
