As I struggled down the Askew Road with a young whippersnapper today on the way to school, trying to avoid what felt like the inevitable slip on the ice, I saw a fantastic sight which I wanted to share with you all. Regular readers will remember this post when I reported the closure of Wine Rack on Askew Road, with the chain having been driven over the edge and administrators having taken over. All jobs were lost. At the time many of you voiced your concern for Mallek who ran the branch.
Well look who'se just bought the shop from the administrators and will now be running it as an independent shop! No doubt bringing just a bit of employment back to the road and the community - seriously well done to him. Huge credit due. And I shall be popping in for a bottle of yer finest spirits some time soon, as I hope will you.
