Shop 'amazed' as petition over colour backed
CUSTOMERS at a cake store in Winchcombe have rushed to its defence after it because embroiled in a row with Tewkesbury Borough Council over a new pink paint job.
More than 80 people have signed a petition in support of the Cake and Sugarcraft Boutique, in North Street, after its owners were told it would have to redo the work because the colour was inappropriate.
The order came after a complaint the store was looking to gaudy next to other shops.
Jan Minett, who owns the business, has vowed not to give in however, branding the decision "churlish".
And her customers seem to agree, rushing to sign the petition this week.
Tess Deacon, who works in the shop, said: "The support we have had has been amazing.
"We have had lots of people coming into the store specially to sign the petition and we have had others phoning us to express their support."
