Celebrate Community...

I saw this poster on Pinterest today and loved it!  It pretty much sums up why I feel so priviliged to be part of a village community.   With a storm of big festive shopping adverts hitting TV screens this week, the 'Buy Local' message feels like the antidote to the 'corporate christmas'. 

It's easy to forget just how lucky we are to have a real, old-fashioned 'market place' on our doorstep here in Pittenweem; cafes, gift shops, artist studios, fish markets, post office, pubs - and lets not forget the butcher, the baker, the candle...

These are the places we bump into each other, say hello and take a moment to pass the time of day.  These are the small, everyday moments that really matter. We miss them when they're gone.

As mentioned last week, we're highlighting the many and varied little shops that help to give Pittenweem its character and heart, by hosting a late night, festive shop & dine evening on Thursday 28th November. Santa will be there too, giving gifts to local children. Please join us!  

'Buying Local' is about more than a few local businesses earning a living... 

It's about our little community celebrating a way of life.
