Some years ago, Alison Rackley started a business designing and making jackets for young children. Besides these, she made cushions for the home, of various patterns.  Based in Brodog Court, the business soon expanded to a shop in High Street called “Poppers” where “Nourish” the bakery is today.

Assisting Alison Rackley in the business was Wendy Price.

The shop is believed to have been opened in the early 1990s

  • I would say earlier, my daughter did a fashion show for them to raise funds for the RNLI when she was about 5 or 6, so 1991 or 1992. I will look out the photos.

  • Guessing around 1996/97 ?? Used to come on holiday from 1995 and moved here in 1997 and I recall going in the shop.
