Evolving Stories

Although we’re not open to the public just yet here at Monkshill Refectory events space or at Jane’s Kitchen cookery school (hopefully it won’t be too long) we wanted to wish good luck to all those local businesses who will be opening back up or re-adjusting yet again over the the next few weeks. Whether, like us, they were able to keep trading working out how to do it all in a safe & responsible way and, like us, are a teensy bit tired! Or are in the position of having to rethink everything they do to be able to open again - and everything in between - one thing we are sure of, it is hard work and it can be exhausting. Most of our small businesses do it because they are passionate about what they do which is great for everyone. We ask that you think more carefully than ever about where you spend your money, support them when you can. Their evolving stories are also the wider community’s story and our choices and behaviour now will directly effect where we go from here. It’s going to be so hard for so many people & that old adage use it or lose it rings true here...
