Down with Black Friday, up with Frost Fayre!

Black Friday, yet another clarion call to spend, spend, spend from Big Commerce, is not to every retailer’s taste.

And if you want to support local producers and retailers in St Leonards, in addition to Clive, don’t forget to attend the Frost Fayre in Kings Road tomorrow. Nick Terdre reports.
