It feels surreal that "non-essential" shops in England will open again on June 15. Like many people, I'm both excited but slightly tentative. After missing my family and friends, missing a good look around the shops comes close. I'm certainly ready to get out again and keen to support our local independent businesses that will get to re-open after a 3 month sabbatical. I know that the traders in Draper's Yard, Chichester are excited to re-open and we all have good plans in place to ensure that customers feel comfortable walking around our "shedquarters". There will be plenty of social distancing and anti-bac on hand...but also plenty of warm welcomes and good chats! Seeing our regulars again and meeting new customers will be truly fab!
