Happy Easter! Shop opening times and a long walk.

Hard to believe it is Easter already!?

Spotty Herberts will be CLOSED on Easter Sunday and Monday.
We are off to Norfolk for a very long walk.
Over the 4 days of Easter weekend, our 2 children Zillah (aged 11) and Fenn  (aged 8) will be walking with their Dad along the Norfolk Coastal Path from Hunstanton Pier to Cromer Pier - a total of just over 47 miles fundraising for SANDS, The Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity.
They will be passing through towns and villages, past beaches and some of our very favourite places we visit every year. First stop will be Erics Fish and Chips in Thornham at Drove Orchards for tea on Good Friday. We'll also pop in to Bells and Whistles for a top up of marbles!
Cake purchases from Stiffkey Stores the following day should keep the walkers walking.
The weekend would not be complete without a visit to Wiveton Hall, we're hoping we'll catch the Asparagus Harvest, fingers crossed. More cake will be consumed here too!
At the end of the walk, energy levels allowing I'm sure we will finish up with a 2p frenzy at our favourite 'slots' on Cromer sea front.
Our base will be a cottage in Cley and the 'support vehicle' will be a beautiful vintage VW camper called 'Tutti Frutti' rented from Retro Campers.
I am the driver of the 'support vehicle' and the provider of plasters and cake.
 
We want to raise £4,000 for SANDS, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity.

In 2003, our first child Joe was inexplicably stillborn at 32 weeks. SANDS work hard to support anyone affected by the death of a baby by:

  1. Improving the bereavement care received by parents and families;
  2. Influencing policy makers;
  3. Promoting research to reduce the numbers of babies dying.

Spotty Herberts donates 1% of all takings to SANDS.

Whilst the shop is closed this coming weekend you may still shop online and until mid night Monday, enter code 'enjoythewalk' at checkout for 20% off the collection 'To Wear'. By shopping with us you will be supporting our fundraising, thank you.
