During the coronavirus lockdown, local curtain maker Robin Godlonton went from employing two staff to none after orders dried up almost overnight.
However, she has kept herself busy with new challenges that have included making personal protective equipment such as face masks and removable covers for shopping trolley handles.
Another avenue was opened up due to the excellent seasonal conditions which meant that grass seeds were causing problems for farmers and their four legged friends.
