A BRIDLINGTON shop that closed earlier this summer has reopened with new owners.

The shop, which used to sell pottery from the now closed Park Rose Ceramics factory on the Park Rose estate, has now reopened as The Garden Shed.

Run by owners James and Marione Horsley, the shop is next to their café on Park Rose Village, on Covert Lane, Carnaby, and sells plants, gardening equipment and assorted gifts.

Park Rose Ceramics closed earlier in the year with the loss of around 15 jobs – and one member of staff has been kept on by James and Marione.

The reopened shop joins their other businesses, children’s play area The Barn and Park Rose Café, and will be run by manager Sal Cowton.

James Horsley said: “As the ceramics business was closing we started to get the shop ready and build stock to open up.

“We have improved and renovated a lot of the site and we have put in a go-kart track for kids which has proved very popular.

“We have worked hard and everything is looking good.”

James and Marione, along with the Park Rose Birds of Prey Centre – which are also at the Park Rose Village site alongside the Original Factory Shop – are holding a special Halloween event tomorrow and Saturday.

The event takes place from 7pm to 8pm on both days and will feature a spooky night time owl walk.
