A new business offering all of your party favourites in one place is set to open near Norwich. 

Families are invited to the grand opening of Balloons and Bakes in Old Catton on Saturday, October 2. 

The business was started by friends and neighbours Helen Kerton and Julie Wentworth, who both worked from home during lockdown.  

Ms Kerton started a business selling helium balloons and only four doors down, Ms Wentworth was making and selling cakes – so the pair decided to join forces and will open their new shop in Catton Chase. 

Visitors will be able to try free cupcakes and take home a balloon.
