Fore Street traders have put together a fantastic Christmas offering with lots of
fun and festive feeling for all the family. A Festive Ferret will be hidden in each

shops will have an offer, discount or freebie available.

together of a lot of independent shops. We offer something different from the
mass of chain stores in the centre of the city and we hope to attract a lot of
people down ‘our end’ on the 7th. It’s a great chance for everyone to have some
fun and to get a really original gift or three whilst they’re about it. We’re all
offering different great deals on the day as well.”
