"Hi everyone and welcome to The Association of Ross Traders.
Since moving to Goodrich 8 years ago, with my husband and my daughter, Ross on Wye became my regular shopping destination.I loved it in Ross so much, that I invested into my own little business. Always having a love of flowers, we bought the then named, Likes Florist, and spent 5 years transforming it into a quirky, current, modern flower shop, now known as The Florist on the Corner.....and we are going from strength to strength.
Little, independent shops like mine are what makes Ross on Wye such a unique and special shopping destination.The Ross Traders association is so important as it means we are all working together for a common purpose, and that is to make businesses thriving and successful.
My role as your chair, is to unite our traders, provide them with support and spread the news that Ross is a wonderful place to come and visit."
