Shame about the Framers going as we have used them for many years with good service. But nothing on the door/window to indicate they have set up elsewhere. Luckily we have found a similar business in New Road in Stanborough.

We have started using the framers in Ware. They are good, but it was a lot more convenient to just walk round the corner. :(

We were told they were moving, but not where! Seems like a missed opportunity to me...

It was a great shame they had not managed to organise a new place in time. I am also told Landseer in ware are good so will give them a try when I next need something framed..

You can also take your pictures to Clock Cards in the centre of town (next to Langley's Taste) to get them framed. The framing is actually done by Landseer in Ware, but it does mean you can still walk round the corner.

I know of at least two other long standing traders in town who are currently balancing age, rent and rate rises and declining trade and could close when the balance shifts the wrong way. A few more are also watching to see which way the wind blows.

To add to the list there is Ortons Hi-Fi centre in Old Cross closed; but I see that there is an offer on Loulebelle.

Do not forget that Colin Sykes retires at the end of May. He has been trading in town for over thirty years. I don't think anyone is taking over the business as at current time and I believe the property has been sold. The landlord apparently owns Holland & Barrett next door as well and it is not beyond the realms of possibility that they could sell that piece of land to Diageo who could incorporate that into Wrenbridge's regeneration plans. But that is just the ravings of a very cynical man.

Never fear though there are plenty of restaurateurs and beauty therapists waiting in the wings to occupy these shops.

Fringe Benefits are closing due to the landlords asking for a £7000 pa rent rise apparently.
