And a very apt title to this blog ladies, as there's much to panic about in February!!!!!
Laura and I are doing our best not to panic but we need a little help from you, our lovely customers!!!!!!
Let me tell you why we're trying not to panic and run round like headless chickens ( wish I could insert a pic of one of our Jellycat Matilda hens here!!)
And that brings me on nicely to the other thing that Laura and I are having a major panic about ROADWORKS!!!!!
Now I know a lot of you will have heard word of mouth, from friends, read in the papers and seen the signs for these roadworks in Petworth!!! But it's really not that bad, really it's not!! I don't live in the town and drive in each day and it has not affected me at all. If you're coming to Petworth from Northchapel/Chiddingfold you have nothing to worry about, the roadworks will not affect you at all. If you're coming from Fittleworth/Pulborough it won't affect you until you leave the town and instead of turning left and then left again out of the car park you just have to do a left and a right and follow the one way system and head back out on the road that takes you past ' The Welldiggers' pub!!! Now if you're coming from the Midhurst/Chichester way you do have to take a little detour, but it's not too far!!! And I will say one thing, if you know Grove Lane as a shortcut, don't use it, there are too many cars parked on the sides of the road and it's two way traffic, it takes longer than if you used the road past 'The Welldiggers', which is where the detour takes you!!!! Just don't turn right at the pub! I know the sign says to and the other one says 'Road Closed', but to get into the town centre and the car park, you just go straight on!!! And they've said that the roadworks are going on until February 25th!!!
PLEASE DON'T ABANDON PETWORTH!!!!
Make a day of visiting the town! We have some fabulous eateries now, two delicatessens (which are the talk of Sussex at the moment), four ladies boutiques, a fab menswear shop, a lingerie shop to die for, a book lovers idea of heaven in the bookshop, two butchers, a haberdashery shop, two florists ( one being the renowned 'Spriggs') and of course all the antiques shops which Petworth is known for!!!
So please persevere with us and come and see us for a touch of Spring and a cheery smile.
