A CHE­SHAM shop which has been closed on and off for the last six months held a grand re-open­ing af­ter a fi­nal 10 day re­fit.

JPS Sta­tion­ers, on Mar­ket Square, opened its doors to the pub­lic on Satur­day (July 2) and the rib­bon was cut by mayor of Che­sham Noel Brown and Mimi Harker, chair of Chiltern District Coun­cil.

The shop had been forced to close in Septem­ber 2015 but the an­tic­i­pated five week clo­sure turned into a 12 week one.

The shop re­opened in De­cem­ber but re­mained un­fin­ished un­til Satur­day’s event, which marked the fi­nal com­ple­tion for Ray Wil­liams and his team.

Mrs Harker said JPS is an im­por­tant part of her life pro­vid­ing the pens and la­bels to run her own busi­ness. “Many towns in the Chilterns have a heart but Che­sham has the big­gest and JPS is at the heart of that,” she added.

Mr Brown said: “How proud we should be, as many other towns are en­vi­ous of Che­sham with its strong and sup­port­ive com­mu­nity.”

Mr Wil­liams thanked all who had helped dur­ing the clo­sures, in­clud­ing fam­ily and friends and the cus­tomers.
