{whispers} “Do you want to know a secret?”

We have a secret …

We’re not sure we should tell you … do you want to know? Well, maybe … do you promise not to tell anyone else?

OK, just between you and me (oh, and Mrs Deli … she knows already)!

We have …

{mini drum roll … mm, can they be small or is a drum roll just a thing, one size fits all?}

Now, where were we?

Oh, yes … the secret!

Are you sitting comfortably?

We have …

A

Secret

Garden

… there, it’s in the public domain … real news … an actual thing …

Tucked away, far from the madding crowd, surrounded by planters filled with aromatic lavender, mostly under cover to deal with all that the Great British Summer has to throw at us, tables, chairs, recycled Welsh wool blankets, pots of thyme on the tables, oodles of time to while away, the murmur of voices, the quiet appreciation of Mrs Deli’s baking, cold beers, chilled wine, hot chocolates, Coaltown Coffee … late opening Thursdays, restorative Mondays, Cheese Tuesdays, Wine Wednesdays … ‘Thank Honeycomb Chocolate It’s Friday’ days … yay hey, It’s The Weekend days … a hideaway, a meeting place, a quiet spot, a laughter-filled space for all …

It’s our Secret Garden … well, your Secret Garden {now we’ve told you about it, are you going to share? You decide}
