Paint a Pot celebrates two years in Cleethorpes Market Place
28th March 2017
ANOTHER year goes by and another Cleethorpes independent business celebrates another successful year in the town.
After two years trading in Market Street, Sandra Parry who owns the Paint A Pot and Gift Shop continues to provide a great place for people to get together and paint pots, have a birthday celebration and also is a fantastic place for visitors to the town to visit especially on a rainy days.
Sandra has been running her business for five years, the first three on Mill Road, but soon found out she wasn’t getting the footfall and moved to Market Street two years ago and hasn’t looked back since!
“Business is great,” smiled Sandra.
Building up a big clientele, Sandra also hosts adult evenings and fish and chip supper nights, where people can bring their own wine etc.
“It’s fantastic, I’ve met so many lovely people over the years, people who have become good friends.
And while we visited the Paint A Pot Shop, some regular visitors popped in to wish Sandra well.
The Tuesday Group piled in for their monthly session of painting pots along with supporter worker from Longhurst and Havelok Homes, Chris Duncan.
“Sandra is wonderful with each and everyone of them,” smiled Chris.
“She is so patient and caring, making sure they each get as much out of the session as possible,” she added.
Part of the group, Tony Cobretti (49) said: “Painting pots is fun, friendly and relaxing, I really enjoy it.”
Ricky Reed, who is partially sighted said: “I love painting it is relaxing and I like to make a fuss of Sandra’s dog, Lucky.”
And to complete the celebrations, Dawn Kettleboro had made a beautiful card for Sandra wishing her well and had got all he members of the Tuesday Group to sign it.
Receiving the card a tearful Sandra said: “This makes everything worth while, it’s so thoughtful and I’m so touched.”
This local family run business has previously held various events including Easter and Christmas fairs, all in aid of different charities including St Andrew’s Hospice, MacMillan, RNLI and the Ark Animal Rescue Centre.
From painting a pots to foam clay, decopatch, sand art, design your own t-shirt, buy a gift or card, art social working, free drinks and no studio fee and you can host any type of parties too, it all happens at the Paint a Pot Shop.
And if you’re stuck for a Mother’s Day present, there’s nothing like that personal touch, so go in before hand and give her hand-painted pot with love for Sunday, March 26.
Sandra’s next evening event is on Friday, March 31 with an adult fish and chip supper adult night at 6.30pm.
