It's April at last, the sun is shining ( at the moment) and the Bank Holiday Weekend is almost here! It's been a long time coming and we can't wait. If you are wondering what to do with your extra time this weekend then there is lots going on in Leek.
On Friday and Saturday there is an Easter Egg Hunt for the kiddies, they can complete a trail across Leek with their map, each independent shop will provide a treat and a sticker for the back of the map and when it's completed they can be entered into the grand prize draw.
On Saturday there is the usual Antiques and Collectibles market that takes place every week 'on the cobbles' in the market square in the town centre. From early on until the late afternoon you will find a fantastic, eclectic mix of stallholders with lots of treasures to be found. We adore this market and consider ourselves very lucky to have it on our doorstep.
On Sunday is the Totally Locally Sunday Supplement Market. This fantastic Artisan market is held on the first Sunday of every month and as well as a great collection of artisan and independent stall holders there is live music and great food available. Many of Leek's fab independent shops are open 11-3 (including ourselves) and many of the fabulous cafes, restaurants and pubs are open too, which we think adds up to a perfect lazy Sunday.
In addition to all these great goings on, with effect from this Sunday, Alcove will now be open every Sunday 11-3, along with a great mixture of other independent shops and cafes in Leek. We know how difficult it can be to get to the shops when you have a busy life so we hope this will make things easier for you.
Leek is a fantastic place to go for a mooch around the shops, a coffee and a cake. Its got a fab atmosphere, lovely shop holders, beautiful surroundings, dog ( & kid) friendly, hell if our kids haven't trashed Alcove already then you don't need to worry about yours!!
Happy Weekend guys!!
Gary, Owner and the dedication behind alcove
