The new mayor of Raunds was on hand to open a shop in the town on Friday (May 12).
Cllr Nick Beck was a special guest when Yvonne Noble hosted a party to celebrate the official opening of her shop Pretty Little Things, in Raunds’ High Street.
This is wedding planner Yvonne’s first venture into the retail trade.
She has completely redecorated the shop and filled it with gift items and cards to suit every age and occasion, including wedding accessories.
Yvonne will divide her time between running the shop and her wedding business, and she said she sees her shop as ‘an attractive browsing area for customers to seek that special little gift or card that is something different and attractive, but not expensive’.
Cllr Beck said he was impressed by Yvonne’s enterprise and appreciated the appeal of her shop, as he believes in small businesses, and supports any new retail shop in Raunds as the community is growing, with new people coming to live in
He added that he was pleased for Yvonne and wished her every success with her new venture.
