A Long Sutton sweet shop has taken to the roads to ensure its customers do not miss out.

Woodwards Confectionery in the Market Place is reporting an excellent response to its new delivery services.

Nathaniel Woodward and Leah Huggins are delivering sweet orders and gift boxes to local customers, while also travelling across a 40-mile radius.

Mr Woodward said: “It is going really well. We are a popular local business in Long Sutton and we have always had a good response, but we never expected the delivery service to go to the level that it has done.

“It really took off after Easter week when people were buying gifts.

“From a business point of view it has been amazing as people leave us nice comments and messages.”

The couple has now introduced delivery days to customers in Boston, King’s Lynn and Wisbech.

Woodwards, which sells traditional penny sweets, is delivering between 35 and 75 orders a day and charge a £2.50 delivery fee.

The couple, who are in the shop at 6am every day to sort orders, said: “Our business has gone from £1,000-£1,500 a week to £3,000. We are so grateful to our customers.”
