Busi­ness is on the Right Track

Mayor drops in for shop open day

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Webb’s Of Tenterden Reopens After Fire -

An open day at­tracted cus­tomers to a mu­sic shop in Ash­ford.

Among those pop­ping in to Right Track Mu­sic on Hen­wood In­dus­trial Es­tate on Satur­day was the Mayor of Ash­ford, Cllr Geral­dine Dyer.

The busi­ness is run by hus­band and wife Chris and Su Bai­ley.

Mrs Bai­ley said the open day was to mark them be­ing se­lected in the Small Busi­ness Satur­day cam­paign as one of the top 100 firms in the coun­try.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion runs a spe­cial day en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to sup­port lo­cal busi­nesses on the first Satur­day in De­cem­ber.

Firms can nom­i­nate them­selves and those se­lected hold an open day.

Right Track Mu­sic was one of two in Kent picked as fi­nal­ists.

Mrs Bai­ley said: “Peo­ple came in to see what we do. We com­bined the open day with a fundraiser for the Royal Mars­den Hos­pi­tal by selling cakes.

“We had a good re­sponse from the public and a lot of sup­port with peo­ple wish­ing us well.”

The busi­ness was set up about 20 years ago by Mr Bai­ley of­fer­ing guitar lessons from his par­ents’ garage.

It has grown and now sells in­stru­ments, runs lessons, has re­hearsal space and a record­ing stu­dio.

It has been on the Hen­wood es­tate for eight years.
