Tenterden High Street News

What fun! We have a wide variety of shops opening up again from Monday from fashion and jewellery, to kitchen goods, tools, garden gifts, takeaways & much more. Many of the shops have ingenious systems in place to allow us to adhere to social distancing rules and will be limiting the number of people in the shop at any one time. In a couple of days' time the pavements will be widened with barriers so you will be able to walk safely along and keep your distance from others. 

You'll be able to grab a coffee and a takeaway sandwich or even a delicious takeaway meal or a scrumptious cake or two from one of the many cafes now open and serving takeaways. You can sit on one of the benches in the High Street with the trees towering above you for shade, drink your coffee, eat your takeaway and watch the world go by.

We are looking forward to seeing you all again in the High Street. The shops need our support now more than any time in the past. Please shop local and support Tenterden High Street. Here are just a few of the shops & takeaways open now, those opening on Monday & opening soon after that.
