A photographic business has been selected to be the next business to benefit from North Kesteven’s ‘Pop-up Shop’ initiative in Sleaford.

Little and Loud Photography has been selected as the third business to open a pop up shop, moving into unit 6 in Navigation Yard, off Carre Street, on Saturday specialising in photo shoots with families and children.

On the same day, Gills2Gems - the second pop up business selected - will be opening their pop up shop next door in unit 7.

Charlotte Frisby, who owns Little and Loud Photography, said: “I have been working with the Prince’s Trust to build up my business plan and my business idea.

“I have learnt lots in the build up to this point and I am very excited about opening my own business and premises within Sleaford.

“I am a newborn and family photographer offering studio and outdoor shoots and I am really looking forward to capturing precious memories to keep forever.”

Neighbouring Gills2Gems will sell a range of different handbags and purses.

Owner Gill Allenby said: “I can’t wait to open and welcome customers into the store.

“I’m really looking forward to trying the store out and learning lots of things along the way.”

Partnership NK, of which North Kesteven District Council is a member, is running the pop up shop initiative to give new or expanding businesses the chance to test the marketplace with easy in, easy out terms so there’s no commitment to a long-term contract.

Having started life in 2014 through Facebook, the business evolved into stalls at a number of events including pamper days, craft and school fairs and Christmas fairs.

Anyone wanting to register interest in Pop Up NK can fill in a form online at www.n-kesteven.gov.uk/popup

Once the form has been received, an officer will be in touch to find out more about your business, identifying if any additional support or advice is needed.
