Town Mayor opens new clothing shop in Hilliers Yard
In one of her first official duties, Town Mayor Councillor Lisa Farrell has opened the new Rohan shop in Hilliers Yard (May 24).
As she wielded her scissors to cut the ribbon, Councillor Farrell said: "I wish the shop every success. Marlborough Town Council wants to support the High Street and the shopkeepers of this town.”
Rohan has taken over the premises recently occupied by Ducklings Toy Shop, which has now moved into larger premises across the Yard.
Rohan - a British company - specialises in outdoor and travelling clothing and equipment: "We make gear to keep you protected and comfortable in the world's wildest places." They previously had rail space in the Landmark store on the High Street.
Despite increasing worries about the general state of High Streets across the nation, there are good signs that some of the empty premises in Marlborough are beginning to fill up again.
