Butcher to open in Ladywell

The word on the street is that Heckstall & Smith Butchers will open in due course at 107 Ladywell Road - on the corner of Gillian Street (see photo below).  Judging by the state of the building, however, and presumably the need to adapt it considerably inside (its last obvious and active use being as a launderette for many years) it's likely to be a while 'til the shop actually opens - so expect to have to have to wait 'til late 2015 or early 2016.
It will be good to have another premises neatened up and in use, providing a service to the local (carnivorous) community.  LVIG hopes the improvements that'll be made to the premises will include full redecoration of the exterior so that this prominent building contributes to, rather than detracts from, the streetscape.

This is great news. We just have to make sure we use it and that there is the right balance between cost and quality.!
