Her business is growing in every sense of the word. 

Less than two years after fulfilling her dream of opening a flower shop, Penney Spall, 47, from North Walsham, has moved to bigger premises.

Penney’s Flowers and Craft Centre has joined 13 other shop outlets at Wroxham Barns after previously operating at North Walsham Garden Centre.

Ms Spall opened the florists in July 2020, just months after being made redundant during the initial Covid lockdown.

She said: "Owning my own flower shop has been a dream of mine since qualifying as a florist over 25 years ago.

"Never in a million years did I ever expect to relocate to bigger premises within two years of opening as the flower side of the shop has grown and I needed more work space to accommodate the workload.

"Wroxham Barns are expanding their activities for children and families. There is plenty to do and so hopefully my little business will grow as well."
