from the local area. We are all delighted to support the second year of this initiative. The
Market will happen on the third Sunday of every month.
As a family business, we also wanted to support those groups who are there to help us in
these challenging times. To this end, we have joined the Health Staff Discounts, Blue Light
Card scheme and Defence Discount Service and can offer a 10% discount to anyone working

room, not already advertised at a discounted rate. You must ask for the discount when
booking and produce the relevant membership card or proof of occupation on arrival.
