A SKILLED husband and wife team from Mathon are celebrating after their unique rural business saw a surge in custom.

Hanley Interiors, run by Anne and Peter Haywood, has gone from strength to strength since it was launched in 2002.

The business, run from Weobley Cross Cottage, a converted forge in Mathon, specialises in hand-sewn curtains, soft furnishings and a range of interior design projects.

The pair have recently set up a new website and recruited new staff to cope with customer demand.

Anne, a member of Women in Rural Enterprise, said the company does all the work in the pattern and design studio.

"We're absolutely passionate about what we do, and understand the huge importance of a person's home."
