Business is on the Right Track
Mayor drops in for shop open day
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.
