der_shop_local_html_element_7_5756!Shop-local-baubel

This year, as part of the Kirknewton Christmas Festival, KCDT are encouraging you to ‘Shop Local For Christmas’. There are a number of outlets on your doorstep who need your support.
The Post Office has a range of Kirknewton and personal Christmas cards and Christmas goods and is worth a visit – if you don’t use it, you will lose it! You can also stock up on your food waste bags there too!
The Kirknewton Premier Festival Stores has launched its Christmas promotions with more to come. You may have received a flyer through the doors but grab a bargain today. Once it’s gone – it’s gone!
If you enjoyed the Christmas Fair then for that extra special gift why not check out or revisit Potter Around. They have a new Potter and some unique crafts and merchandise for you to browse and buy. Well worth a visit for some great scenery and a sneaky peek at the Allotments too!
These stores have shown their support for Kirknewton activities all year so please, please, please show your support and Shop Local This Christmas.
