THIS December pop down to Meads Street for your Christmas shopping.

It is full of excellent, top-quality shops and well worth a visit.

One new attraction is Ren’s Kitchen, which has only just opened. It has a branch in Worthing and has now expanded into Eastbourne.

It is open seven days a week and you can be sure of a warm welcome as well as great food and excellent coffee.

Grand Flowers & Gifts always looks fabulous while Longleaf is a very special place to shop – its chutneys and jams are out of this world. Both are packed full of beautiful and unusual presents – Christmas shopping at its best.

Meads has regained its Post Office, which is important to residents, and that’s open seven days a week with long hours.

There are two very popular beauty salons – Bliss Spar & Beauty and JNC aesthetics and Meads just has that true festive feel about it now the Christmas Lights are up.

Xing Fu Chinese restaurant is also very popular while Ancient Grains does some outstanding Sardinian sharing plates in the evening.

Let’s not forget the two very busy pubs in Meads – The Ship and The Pilot – and don’t forget those other special shops and restaurants in Compton Street and Carlisle Road are also part of Meads.

Come to Meads for your Christmas shopping – and indeed all year long! You won’t regret it!
