In a strange turn of events, I was recently asked by a local estate agents if they could use the LOVE NEW MILLS heart design in their new expanded shop. Obviously this initiative is all about improving the local area, so I said yes, with the proviso that they make a large donation to their neighbours, the New Mills Volunteer Centre, that does a great deal of work giving the elderly and vulnerable people in the area any extra help they need, as well as being a bit of a social hub as well. They happily agreed to the donation, and are so pleased with the final result that they intend to make another donation in the New Year.
Not only that, but they asked me to officially open their shop for them. I can only presume the mayor was busy elsewhere. Anyway, it was an enjoyable morning, especially with the addition of some champagne. And we did our obligatory local news posing, and here is the result!
If anyone else would like me to open their shop or business, I am available at very reasonable rates. 😉
