LONG LEE resident Leanne Wrench has opened a second business on the Bracken Bank estate.

Leanne has successfully run the Cutting Edge hairdressing salon for many years and has now opened the Edge Boutique alongside.

The entrepreneur said it had always been her ambition to open her own fashion boutique.

She said: “The shop next door to my salon had been unoccupied for about 10 years and had become very run down.

“I set about refurbishing and modernising the premises in order to create an enjoyable environment in which to choose quality clothing at affordable prices."

She said that upping the new business had given Bracken Bank shopping parade a new lease of life and provided employment for at least one person.

The Edge Boutique was formally launched by Keighley town mayor, Cllr Peter Corkindale, and was inundated with customers during the first two hours.
