It is with sadness that I have to mention the loss of a few local businesses. A local bra manufacturer has gone bust, a submarine company has gone under, a manufacturer of food blenders has gone into liquidation, a dog kennel has had to call in the retrievers and a company supplying paper for origami enthusiasts has folded. Do you know of any others?

Yes, it has come to this. 😷

A fairground equipment manufacturer is having its ups and downs but a detergent company is cleaning up its act.?

A local accountants is doing its sums while a First Aid operation is surviving.

A local garage is hoping that the wheels don't come off.

Despite all this the local newspaper is on a roll.

Our local Chinese Takeaway said they’ve had their chips.

The butchers said there was too much at steak and they were in for the chop.

The Cobbler was beyond heeling and has soled up.

The Ironmonger said it was nailed on he would file for bankruptcy. He said his bank had lost interest.

An adhesive manufacturer has gone insolvent and the MD has commented that we should all stick together. :roll:

President Trump has announced that face masks are just a Chinese cover up and anticipated they would be all over before the end of the month. (Didn't say which month but it doesn't matter as he will deny saying it)?

The Architects have closed - they were overdrawn.

The Tennis Club folded by de-fault.

My Personal Trainer said he is letting his business run down.

The Stamp Dealer closed - said philately got him nowhere.

The local plumber's company has gone down the pan too - he was relieved though as business was driving him round the bend.
