Chamber chatter with Tracy
Shops are taking on sartorial splendour with the addition of some crafty bunting. Jill at Revival  has led the trend and Chris at Chalmers Butchers has followed suit with bunting for outside the shop and has hers up already and looking fabulous.
Market days will have a new look with tables on the footpath displaying stock to show that it is a special day in the town.
 Until next month, support your locals to keep them in business.
