Announcement

Hello to you all and Happy New Year. It’s been a while since I’ve made contact! My apologies for that to all my loyal customers and followers. As some of you may know I have had a very busy year in 2018. For the first few months I was busy with my mum, who was in and out of hospital. I’m pleased to say she is better now after a major operation. During that time my daughter Rebecca had a lovely baby girl in May, so I was busy with looking after her little boy and the new mum and baby. I now have four wonderful Grandchildren! So, after much thought and deliberation, I have decided to cease trading from January 31st 2019. I have loved running my little business for the last ten years, and making many new friends and meeting lots of lovely people. I am now putting my energies into my growing family and promoting veganism. I feel that addressing this is so urgent now, as our planet is on the brink of a climate change crisis, and adopting a vegan diet is the most important thing we can all do, to help stop this. For our children and grandchildrens future. So once again, thank you for supporting me and I wish you all well in the future and am still very happy to hear from you. Best Wishes, Lynda
