After months in lockdown, our five retail shops in Paddock Wood, Crowborough, Seaford, Bexhill and Hampden Park and our Cafe and Cornford Lane site reopened today.

Some special guests joined us to celebrate the reopening of our shops, with The Mayor of Tunbridge Wells, Councillor Joy Podbury, officially ‘reopening’ our Paddock Wood branch and Eastbourne and Lewes Councillor Alan Shuttleworth ‘reopening’ our Hampden Park branch. 

The Mayor of Tun
bridge Wells cut a ribbon to mark the opening of our shop located in Commercial Road in Paddock Wood's town centre and the shop welcomed back customers with colourful balloons. It was wonderful to s

ee shoppers browsing the great offers available in the shop once again.  

All our five shops in Paddock Wood, Crowborough, Seaford, Hampden Park and Bexhill are giving away a free keyring and bookmark designed by the people the charity supports to the first ten customers who make a purchase in each shop and all will be offering discounts on many items throughout April.

The Bluebell Cafe, situated at our beautiful Cornford Lane site also reopened today and despite the surprising snowy weather lots of customers returned for a
 welcoming hot drink, bite to eat and browse of the spring plants on sale. 

Nicki Todd and Emma Learmouth who run the cafe were delighted to see so many return today. Nicki said, "It's been brilliant, we thought people may not join us this morning becau

se of the weather but the turnout has been amazing! It's wonderful to welcome people back and have the place buzzing with activity again!" 

The rest of our Cornford Lane site has also reopened, including the woodland walk, children's playground, small animal barn and outdoor gym. 

All our shops, cafe and the site are following the latest
 government guidance on COVID safety measures.
