Retirement beckons... 20/11/2016
As many of you will already know, Sue and Phil have made the decision to retire before Christmas and consequently we will be closing the gallery for the last time after the close of business on Sunday 18th December. We have been dealing with a lot of stress, not only as a result of flooding, but with life in general and when our potential buyer for the business dropped out at a late stage we decided that uncertainty was a poor way to run a business. We are intending to make this a positive move for us, as in very real terms this gallery has been our baby and we have loved every minute of it, despite the various traumas we have suffered (something else that is like having a baby!) and we are approaching retirement in a very forward looking frame of mind. As already said, we have yet to sell the gallery and although circumstances are not great right at this moment we donít feel that we are being forced out, and we are finishing with enjoying retirement our main aim. We are excited about the prospect of travel, of inflicting ourselves on our kids and to pursuing new interests, and Phil is looking forward to having more time to give to painting. So we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and friendship in the past.
Very sincere best wishes
Sue and Phil
