Hi Kay, No problem at all we can do that for you. So glad that you enjoy visiting the Courtyard Centre and notice all the positive changes. Thank you!

Very average with good opportunity missed to have a genuine craft centre. Just a few odd shops and a cafe. Very friendly and helpful wool shop, otherwise not worth a visit.More
