Fond Farewell Rumpus as Wye Bakery Comes Upfront

Posted at 11:11 am under Uncategorized

Wye said goodbye to Rumpus on the Green last Saturday. A popular clothing agency run successfully by Jak Mansell. This was a lively and friendly business based at 22 Church Street. It certainly added sparkle to our village especially  its window displays. We wish Jak and her family all the best for the future. (We will however miss the bargains and lovely clothes.)

Twenty Two Church Street has for many years been a bakery. In 1960 Mr G. Hatton owned the Bakery and sold the business to Mr J Small who in turn sold it to Mr Bob Young. He closed down in the late 90’s -2,000. The shop stood empty until Mary Braithwaite and Nigel Ings opened it once again as a bakery in 2012 after a tremendous amount of restoration.

They based the bakery and counter at the rear of the premises and the customers used the side passage to queue eagerly for their bread. The village was pleased to have its Bakery back again.

The shop itself was rented out to Jak Mansell who opened her dress agency Rumpus on the Green March 2012.

In 2014 Mary & Nigel sought a new project moving up to the Isle of Luing Oban Scotland handing over the Bakery to Pauline Hickson who,  now will take on the shop bringing her wonderful display of pastries and freshly baked bread  back onto the front line of Church Street.
