A PASTY shop in Truro is getting ready for a busy summer after a winter of major roadworks.
Beverley Chapman took over the Oggy Oggy Pasty Shop on River Street just before roadworks caused the street to be closed off to cars.
She said: "Like a lot of local businesses, we're very keen to see the back of the roadworks in Truro.
"I know they're necessary, but it's really affected the overall numbers of people walking past the shop."
Mrs Chapman previously worked as a technical manager at Crantock Bakery and has enjoyed learning about all aspects of the retail business.
She said: "You'd think it's always the same in a pasty shop, but I learn something new every day. I've really enjoyed the challenge and am loving seeing our hard work pay off."
Mrs Chapman works alongside her manageress, Katie Nicholson, who also worked at Crantock Bakery.
Both are now enjoying being "the other side of the counter" as they describe it, as Crantock Bakery is now the shop's suppliers.
"We've had so much support from Crantock," said Mrs Chapman. "I really appreciate all the effort they put in to help us get off the ground."
Now the pasty shop and café are fully up and running the pair are starting to put plans into place for the upcoming summer season.
With the roadworks slowly leaving Truro, the Easter Holidays starting and the sunny weather expected for the next few weeks, the team are expecting to be very busy.
There will be new additions to the menu that will sit alongside the food and drinks already on offer – which include cream teas, a variety of hot beverages from the Cornish Coffee Co and of course, the Oggy Oggy Cornish pasties.
