There are a few changes happening in the village this winter.
It is sad to see long established Adams Electrical close. Owner Paul Adams will continue to trade in his main store in Sidley. The good news is that the premises will have new occupants soon so watch this space.
In the mews the Dogs Bakery has relocated to larger premises in Bexhill but again it does not sound like this will be empty long.
Sussex Hardware will also be closing soon but will continue to operate through their web site. Lastly Frilly Milly and File and Prep will close at the end of December as the owners Jane and Derek are moving to Hampshire. Hopefully both these premises will be snapped up quickly. Fortunately shop premises in Little Common and Cooden are highly sought after, there was 100% occupancy in the village in the summer until the Nat West Bank closed. That site now has a for sale board up.
Hopefully 2015 will see continued success for the large variety of independent businesses in Little Common and Cooden. The business directory on this web site also include a large number of non premise based businesses. Take a look and see what else Little Common and Cooden has to offer.
