1. I’m Lou. I manage Megan’s Other Place. The picture is of Megan. She is the business owner. She also has Megan’s Place, which is a hair salon in the Homend Mews.

3. - we offer home delivery or orders can be placed online for free collection.

4. We sell a range of beauty and hair products that you can’t usually get on the high street. We also sell a large range of well-being and eco friendly products. We support local makers, and currently stock locally made candles by Kind Senses and wax melts by Oh So Melty. I’d like to think we have something for everyone. We also try and offer fun glitter tattoos in the school holidays.

5. We have 2: our Head Jog Brush flies off the shelves and we are always restocking. They are environmentally friendly (the net co2 emissions are zero) and they work like magic. They run through all hair types like butter. Megan uses them in the salon because they are so good. Our second is the Soap Story soap sponge. We have a range of scents and they are all vegan and cruelty free. Each one is up to 50 uses. They smell incredible. We’ve just stocked their Christmas range.

6. We have some amazing rainbow fabric hanging in the shop and a lady popped in to ask if she could buy it to use as a scarf. Someone also asked if we sold shoe dye.

7. It’s been lovely to open up our shop in Ledbury. We’ve met so many really lovely people, both locals and tourists. We’re really lucky to work in such a beautiful building and it’s been fun learning some of the history. I hope a lot more of the locals come and take a look over the coming months - it’s always great to meet new people and we have so much to offer.

8. We really think it’s important to support small businesses right now. We are so lucky to have some great places in Ledbury. We really appreciate any support we get - even if it’s as simple as sharing our posts on social media.
