Local residents and visitors are being encouraged to support the shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants and salons in Hawkhurst high street as coronavirus restrictions ease.

Hawkhurst, with its beautiful colonnade, is a friendly high street with attractions to keep you amused for a whole day out. The independent cinema is a magnet for people from far and wide, while open-air markets on the first Saturday of each month showcase local food producers.

As a passionate supporter of small and local business, Lisa has been co-ordinating with the organisers, and doing everything she can to put Hawkhurst on the map.

Watch out for Ooh How Lovely on this fab film from Rob Smith, exploring the joys of shopping in Hawkhurst.

“Business for my shop in Hawkhurst has been a total experience of learning to adapt. It’s vital to have local support, but also be available and offer adapted services when situations change.”

Lisa Edwards as quoted in the publications below

Lisa was interviewed for Kent Online about shops reopening post lockdown:

Lisa Edwards, of Hawkhurst interiors and gift store Ooh How Lovely, said: “We can’t wait.

“We are actually decorating the village with bunting this weekend, so I have been making lots of bunting. Everything is going ahead and that’s really exciting.”
