LETTER OF THE DAY: Claws out over Santa

Have your say

IT may have started life as a pop-up Christmas shop, but now it will be a permanent fixture in Hayling Island.

Kate Carpenter and Rebecca Tuttle have joined up with interior firm The Contemporary Home, to launch a one-stop Gift Shop in St Mary’s Road.

It features local artists and handmade products from the area.

Clare Satchwell, managing director of The Contemporary Home, said: ‘We’re over the moon to have made this shop a permanent fixture on the Island.

‘We have a wonderful selection of home-grown businesses here from craft products to artists, jewellery designers and our own wide range of gifts.’
