A sparkling array of jewellery will be on sale in a new shop which has opened in Nailsea.

C&G Silver of Nailsea welcomed customers when it opened up in Crown Glass Shopping Centre on Saturday.

The store, owned and managed by Paul Croxton, will sell a wide range of silver jewellery including body jewellery, titanium bracelets and silver gift items.

Paul said an accident has prompted the career change.

He said: “For more than 29 years, I was a fully qualified butcher but an injury meant I could not continue with this professionally but, as they say, every cloud has a sliver lining and it gave me the opportunity to change direction and take on this new challenge.”

Paul is a huge supporter of the Help for Heroes charity and everyone who buys a product from the shop will be able to buy a £1 raffle ticket for a monthly draw – 50p from each ticket will be donated to charity.

The 5p charge for carrier bags in store will also be donated to the charity.
