The All New Silly Billy‘s in Old Gate

After some time negotiating contracts and other such legalities we are finally on full pace with Silly Billy‘s new shop fitting out. Employing a local carpenter we are making some simple shelving, maximising the space and designing our own counter. We very much hope to be open within the next two weeks.
Being open for the Easter Holidays is our aim, our suppliers have been great and sent us some display units, we are going to get some graphic vinyls applied to our huge window and we are looking forward to retailing from our new location and a brand new shop in Hebden Bridge. which will be at:

Silly Billy‘s Toy Shop
Old Gate House
Old Gate
Hebden Bridge
HX7 6EN

The support we have received from the public and from suppliers has been fantastic and we will write a thank-you post later after we have opened.

As you can imagine we have a great deal of work to do. Bill is busy varnishing shelves this weekend and we are trading from our Pop Up Shop in Welcome Independent Living at the bottom of Albert Street in Hebden Bridge as well.

As well as us being busy in our New Shop we noticed the Environment Agency were also pretty active getting some rubble out of the River, which will help the rubber ducks move down stream during the Hebden Bridge Duck Race, however the impact it may have at reducing floods is questionable (in the author’s humble opinion)
