|THE WOOFER WASHER
My name is Tracey Jones and being an animal lover, I want to share my passion for animals with other pet lovers by looking after their pets. I have grown up with dogs, cats and other small animals so have many years’ experience. The Woofer Washer, “the dog that comes when it’s called!” is a self-contained mobile pet grooming business that provides grooming services to Wall Heath and surrounding areas. I come direct to you and groom your pets there and then. No hassle for you of travelling or waiting to pick your pet up. I even use my own electricity and water!

Frank Senior took Frank Junior out to see some hives and the interest soon became a way of life.|

If you would like a hand made leather bag, hand crafted leather belt or custom made leather guitar strap made by an old fashioned Shropshire craftsman then you have reached the right place. My handmade leather items can be personalised with initials or a name and hand dyed in a range of colours. I offer ‘short run’ manufacture of high quality leathergoods plus a clicker press and laser leather cutting and machine leather stitching service for fashion and industry. Although my workshop is in Ludlow, Shropshire, I operate a busy mail order service and send my leather goods worldwide.
| Mill Cottage Soaps Mill Cottage Soap is based at our little stone cottage in the heart of mid Wales. We produce natural handmade soaps and bath products from high quality natural ingredients. Our soap is handmade, hand cut and hand wrapped. Using the traditional cold process method our soap is made from Spanish Olive oil, Sunflower oil and Coconut oil. This process retains a high percentage of the natural oils and glycerine so the soap is gentle to use. Natural essential oils and botanicals are added to give the soap an individual quality. Each batch is measured and whisked by hand before being poured into moulds. Once set the soap is hand cut to size and then put aside to ‘cure’ for up to 6 weeks. The bars are then individually wrapped and decorated. Our products contain no artificial chemical additives, colours or preservatives.
