Summer of sport and autumn of food and drink




Summer of Sport
Well it might have been a bumper summer for British sport but it has been a bumpy season for local independent traders at Whitstable Harbour Village.  The wettest summer on record, in the middle of a recession, with a series of high profile extravaganza keeping people glued to their TV sets, means that Season 6 is proving to be one of the toughest on record. Thank goodness that the weather held for the Whitstable Oyster Festival and for the determination and ingenuity of the Village traders all focused like Olympic athletes. Rest assured no world records will have been broken this summer in the local economy as we try to compete with the all powerful supermarket giants.

New traders to check out
With the recent arrival of at Waltshaws of Whitstable http://www.waltshaws.co.uk/Buy.htm ,  the Kentish food quarter is now stronger than ever. Libby and Becca specialise in turning Kentish produce into very tasty food and you will not find anything like their feta & beetroot roll, smoked mackerel pate and homemade scotch eggs at Tesco. We just need a really talented baker for next season to offer cakes, pies, bread and pastries to complete the food quarter. Other new arrivals to check out at the village are local fashion entrepreneur Laura at Hot Rocking Belle , http://www.hotrockinbelle.com/ Christine McNicholas at Driftwood Design http://www.driftwood-design.co.uk/, and Steve Melrose our new photographer at the Picture Box http://www.stevemelrosephotography.co.uk/ . They are all open this week-end so why not pay a visit.

Autumn of Kentish Food and Booze
Keep an eye out on the website and Twitter for details of our Kentish ale, cider and wine promotions coming up over the autumn (hic!). We remain OPEN every week-end until Christmas.

2013 Recruitment
We are now accepting applications from local artists, craftspeople and food producers for the 2013 season commencing 2 March 2013. And please remember to NO GO TESCO.

but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and don't seem to get nearly anything done.
