The Noticeboard Christmas 2020 Publication
Sponsored by SoundBuckets!
HO HO HO ! Christmas is coming and locally we have all you need to make your Christmas very special. At this difficult time for all businesses and charities, please take a good look at all of the 25 items below. Don’t delay, items are selling fast and we only have a few weeks until the big day.
Each seller has been asked to send a donation to charity in return for this advertising and I hope that we all support charities over this Christmas time. They are really struggling and need as much help as we can give them. Please tell the supplier where you saw this advert, so they know you arrived via the Noticeboard. For some of them this will lead to a further charitable donation.
Finally Thank you to SoundBuckets (East Grafton) for formatting and hosting this information for us.

Wines by Bill
I spent many years peddling wine before becoming a publican. It is now my pleasure rather than my work, although I am happier rooting around for bargains and interesting wines than sipping fine wines.
Now we are locked down once again, I thought that I would share some of my favourites for your enjoyment over Christmas.

During Lockdown I collected all the best bottles from The Swan bottle bins and turned them into lamps.
All the bottles are drilled so that the cord is inside the bottle, and the cords are all switched and fitted with a 13 amp plug.
I have quite a few for sale, and quite a few still to make!
I am going to put them in the Swan during the new lockdown.
The bottle lamps are mostly £20 -£25, and if you would like a shade they are an extra £10, or an Edison lightbulb is £5.
Or if you have a favourite brand/ bottle I can make it into a lamp for you.
Contact me via Bill at the Swan 01672 870 274, or email@example.com

Evelyn for Everything
A mother-daughter combination inspired the idea for Evelyn For Everything.
Masks these days are being thrown around, not taken care of and not very good for the skin (or environment!)- that’s why we designed these sets.
Keep your masks clean and safe whilst still looking ever so chic. The 100% silk mask will keep your skin from any irritation while the bag will keep you 100% fabulous.
