Well Worth A Round Of Applause

Let's put to one side the slightly bizarre decision to invite Chris Evans to the Grand Opening. What Claire Robertson is doing in Dorchester should serve as an inspiration to many.

She was one of the thousands of people who lost their job when Woolworths went under. But rather than sitting on her bum for the duration of the recession, she's re-opened the shop premises in which she worked for 18 years under the name Wellworths (nickname: Wellies) and is selling locally-produced toys and crafts. In so doing she's handed 20 former Woolworths employees a job.

And the very best of British luck to you, Claire !
