THE VILLAGE VIEW

Posted on September 20 2012 at 10:34:38

This spot is usually reserved for the “view” of the magazine, but on this occasion we are happy to pass it over to that of a local shopkeeper.

We won’t say who it was, but he slipped a piece of paper across his counter and asked: “Could you possibly get this in The Village somewhere?”

It’s a lament we hear often – and the threat can even come from a large competitor flexing its muscles within a village, never mind from “out of town”.

“In this double dip recession, remember our village shops and small businesses. Everyone at the moment needs help and keeping it local will help us all. Let’s keep the hearts of our villages going.”
