The owner of a Magdalen Street boutique is preparing to bid farewell to her loyal customers as she readies herself for retirement.

Trisha Christianson, who opened Hannah Rose Boutique six years ago, will shut up shop later this year.

The Wickmere-born woman - who now lives in Aylsham - worked in the bicycle trade for more than 35 years before selling her previous shop, Aylsham Cycles, after 15 years.

She set up Hannah Rose in 2016.

When naming her fashion emporium, she took inspiration from the middle names of both her mother and grandmother to create her brand.

The 65-year-old said: "I set up the boutique because I'd been self-employed for a number of years. I decided to have a change of career when I was around 60.

"I really enjoy fashion and jewellery. I've been very lucky to be surrounded by lovely people around here.

"I really appreciate my regular customers. I've had - and still have - a lovely community of people who regularly pop in.
