Where is vita stores please?

Helen, it’s in Harbour Street next to cafe and kitchen

The very high tides over the last few days have loaded our beaches with plastic and marine debris . We’re not running group litter picks just now, but let’s all, as individuals, pick up beach litter as often as we can. Stay safe everyone ... See MoreSee Less

"Tomorrow should have been our third Green Living Market Day at @whitstableumbrellacentre , we are soooo disappointed to cancel due to Covid 19 but understand its essential to keep everybody safe. However we don't want to miss out on connecting with you folk any longer 🌿 ⠀⠀
After the initial shock of lock down many of our amazing stall holders have picked themselves up, dusted themselves off and adapted to the new normal, some have even thrived by offering local delivery or a postal service🌿⠀
⠀⠀
We are now ready to launch a virtual Green Living Market on Sunday 3rd May. So from the comfort of your home follow our instagram stories for a showcase of green businesses to inspire a more earth conscious lifestyle🌿⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Look forward to seeing you there 💚⠀

"TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT⠀
Our fantastically entertaining quiz will be live at 8pm tonight. We have moved our popular quiz online for two important reasons ⠀
1). Bringing people together is an important part of what we do at Revival. Although we can’t all be together physically we can still share experiences and be part of community events through the magic of social media. We love your comments and feedback throughout the night so don’t forget to say hello ❤️⠀
2). We haven’t received a penny of Government support or other funding as we are an anomaly, we pay our contribution of business rates via rent to the Horsebridge so we don’t have an account and although they can claim we cannot. Although we are under the East Kent Mind umbrella, we are a self funded social enterprise project so we don’t have a charity number and many funders therefore don’t recognise us. We really are currently 100% reliant on donations in order for us to be able to re-open in some form. ⠀
So your donate to play tonight will make a massive difference. We would love to get up to halfway of our £9K target tonight, if we can get 90 households to play for a £10 donation we can do it. ⠀
So please do share our event far and wide, £10 is great value for a fantastic nights entertainment for all but even more valuable to us as it will help us to re-open our mental health café for all ❤️ @gsimps91 ⠀

"L E T S G E T Q U I Z I C A L 🍺 ⭐️ 1ST MAY 2020 8pm ⭐️ We are lucky enough to have Grant, a local actor as part of the Revival family and one of the many benefits its that he is our fantastic quiz master. Our quizzes are like no other, will he just sit in front of a computer reading questions? NOOOO!⠀
Last time we had Elvis in a Poncho with his fire pit and even more glorious we had The Pink Lady with her live music listening round, seriously not to be missed!⠀

We are raising funds to help Revival re-open (we are non rateable and not entitled to any Government support), so all we ask is for a donation to our JustGiving page and then sit back and enjoy a unique evening of entertainment.⠀

_____________________________⠀
@plantoysuk toys are not only safely made and perfectly designed for growing little people they are also sustainably manufactured ~ and are carbon neutral 🌈 ♻️🌏⠀

..to reassure you ~ we implemented very strict safety and risk assessment processes for the safest environment for all of our toys and customers at Buttercup - closing the shop to customers well before the government directives - to ensure that there were no risks to our customers and as we have been self isolating ( due to living with my high risk pregnant daughter ) for the last month - the only outing we have is along the sea front to the shop and back - we follow a rigorous practice wearing gloves when packaging - and all of our shipping is collected by DPD so we do not visit any public places during the distribution process of your purchases 📦 ______________________________⠀
..we are doing everything we can to ensure that you are safe ~ as is always the case at Buttercup - our customers big and small are the most important to us 🌈⠀
