Are you looking for the perfect gift this Father’s Day? Faversham shops and businesses have plenty to offer this year, leaving you no excuse to shop elsewhere.
It’s so important to shop local when and where you can, as many of the independent businesses have been hit hard over the last couple of years with many struggling to keep afloat. Buying from a local shop, market, or other business is a great way to support them by showing that you love what they do, and encouraging them to carry on their great work.
