Foxlands Walk in St Marychurch, located just off the main Shopping Precinct, leading directly into Chilcote Close and the Chilcote car park and was at one time the entrance to the local Dairy.  The lane now comprises of a mix of housing along with five shop premises.

Unfortunately, over recent years four of the shops became empty and unloved, leaving only Sian’s Hair Studio open.

Last year we saw the arrival of Dave and Mike opening up ‘Liberty Barbers,’ and this month we have seen the welcome opening of two brand new businesses, ‘The Puzzled Sweet Shop’ and ‘The Garden Retreat Café’, both with attractive and welcoming frontages.

Wandering down this lane you will pass the very pretty front garden belonging to ‘the Stables’, full of colour and beautiful flowers.  You will also see the five delightful wall troughs planted and cared for by the Bloom team.

Babbacombe Bay Bloomers would like to wish Sarah and Stuart, from the new Puzzled Sweet Shop and Sue and Bill, from the Garden Retreat Café a very warm welcome to St Marychurch and wish them well with their new ventures.  We are pleased to have them join our community.

With only one shop left to fill the future of Foxlands Walk looks brighter and a much needed ‘Good News’ story after our challenging year.
