I am a local lady from Todmorden where I have lived most of my life. After leaving school I trained as a hairdresser and worked for many years in Hebden Bridge. I then went on to work at Calderdale College, I was there for 19 years and loved working in education where I could make a real difference to people’s lives through education.
Over the last few years and after a serious health scare I dreamed of opening a stylish ladies clothing boutique. I have a love for fashion and as my partner would say “I am very good at shopping”. I made the brave decision to make my dream a reality, secured a prime location on the square in Hebden Bridge and Dragonfly Boutique was borne.
I believe that good customer service, welcoming, friendly and helpful is the key to a successful business alongside listening to your customer needs. I wanted to create an environment where customers feel at ease looking at the goods, taking their time and enjoy their shopping experience.
I am passionate about supporting fellow independent local businesses and working alongside like minded people to improve and make a difference to businesses and tourism locally.
