The Berkhamsted High Street business is run by husband-and-wife team Anne and Lee Wilberforce and their niece Melissa Dear, 20.

Anne said: “We are in a small town and 90 per cent of our business comes from Berkhamsted and we just want people to know that we are here.

“Sometimes customers have come to us and said, ‘We did not even know you were there. We only saw you the other day.’”

Anne and Lee launched the business in 2009, so they could more easily fit their working hours around children Maisie, seven, and Mallory, eight.
