Back to school shopping in Ilfracombe High Street!

Is it too early to start thinking about the kids going back to school?
Not long now until the new term starts at Ilfracombe Arts College
I think a lot of exhausted Ilfracombe parents would answer a big "NO" to that question-especially with the terrible weather we've been having this summer!
But before you automatically head into Barnstaple to get your kids kitted out for the start of term, why not take a look at what our local high street has to offer?
Supporting Ilfracombe High Street is more important than ever in the current credit crunch climate. The plans for parking meters along the high street are threatening to make business even harder for many of our local traders.
Avoid the crowds in Barnstaple and pick up your pens, pencils and paper at Dickens, which is is well equipped for all your back to school stationery needs. The Factory Shop is also worth a look, and stocks stationery and school bags at really reasonable prices.
So get your shopping done early, put your feet up, pop the kettle on and relax knowing you're all sorted for the start of term when you'll finally have some time to yourself again!
Have I forgotten anywhere? Where do you think is the best place to buy school uniforms in town?
