A happy customer has donated a cake to celebrate a Portishead estate agent’s 150th anniversary.

The colurful creation, designed in the shape of a house, was made by client Tracie Fry after the business sold her house.

She said: “It is a bit of a belated thank you gift as Reeds Rains sold our home very quickly for us last year, but when I saw it publicised that it is celebrating its 150th birthday I thought it would be a nice gesture to create a fitting cake for it.”

Other birthday celebrations planned by Reeds Rains, which has an office in High Street, include making a donation to charities, burying a time capsule and holding a party.

The business has also been named as a sponsor of the Portishead Home Show which is due to be held at Somerset Hall on September 22.

The show will feature dozens of exhibitors showcasing all the latest interior designs and features.
