A new shop has opened up in my local village, and its unique. Read on to find out more about it.

Introducing The Green Room

I live near the village of Beltinge, which is a mile or so from Herne Bay seafront. Its a delightful little village, with a bakery, 2 convenience stores, a hairdresser, Chinese takeaway, and a fish and chip shop, just to mention a few. Nestling about halfway along the main street, opposite the village hall is THE GREEN ROOM, cleverly, named and run by its owner Janis Green.

As soon as I entered the shop I was struck by all the interesting, and very well priced stock in it. From table lamps, clocks, and also unusual pieces of home decor, home made bags, and so much more. It was a delight to browse around. I used to run a shop myself, and the first thing I noticed is just how good at display Janis is. She has a real flair to make everything look good, and this immediately draws your eyes to it.

As soon as you enter the shop, you get a warm welcome, nothing is too much trouble. In this day and age its nice to find a local shop where the customer is so well looked after, and it will certainly encourage me to return again.

Janis also serves tea and coffee with a slice of homemade cake for a very reasonable price., made by her friend Karen, and I can thoroughly rrecommend it. You can sit inside or out, as she has tables outside the shop. Nearby, with just a road in between ,are the cliffs, and a sea view. Beltinge is a charming little village, which has barely changed during the passage of time, its an unspoiled corner on the south east coast, where we enjoy some of the best weather the UK has to offer.

But that is not All

Janis also holds events in her shop, and on 11th June there will be a Clothing event, when all the locals will come along to see if they can find something new and different to wear for the summer.

She also invites people to do talks, and this is how I became involved. On 14th June I will be there with my books. I will talk about how I first became a writer, then I will speak about all of my books, each one is a different genre. The subject of my talk is IINSPIRATION.

Finally I will speak about my latest work which is entitled ONE MOMENT OF MADNESS. I will also read a brief chapter from it. The book was published in April, and I am very excited because it's been nominated for A READER'S CHOICE AWARD. This is a real thrill for me, as I am working hard to become a known writer. My talk will take place between 11 and 12, and again from 1 until 2pm, and I will be at the shop all day from 10am until 4pm.

Everybody is welcome to come at any time that day, not only to see me, but to look around this innovative and interesting shop. I will be selling signed copies of all my books at a special price that day, so why not come along and check us out. I can guarantee you will receive a very warm welcome whether you are just looking or buying. THE GREEN ROOM has something for everyone, just come and check it out.

My thanks to Youtube for the video. The images are my own and The Green Room.
