“I have spent 20 happy years at The Old Post Office. Starting as a Health,
Beauty & Holistic centre offering treatments across the 2 treatment rooms,
one I use myself, the other rented out to other therapists, I saw a gap in the
market for a local gift shop & developed this side of the business to offer
everything from Greetings cards to handbags, jewellery & more, all of which
have proved popular with my customers as they pop in for a present or a treat
for themselves. Having moved & married recently the time has come to make
way for someone else to seize this opportunity and establish a business. It
has been wonderful to be part of the supportive local community & I know they
will look forward to welcoming someone new.”
