"I'm excited to see what the future holds for Old Bolsover Yard.”
The yard is a craft complex which sits on the main street leading up to the 17th Century Bolsover Castle.
Independent shops at the yard have found innovative ways to survive the challenges of the pandemic.
They took part in the ‘ShopAppy’ initiative, an award-winning scheme created to give small businesses an easy and effective way to continue trading online despite restrictions.
It provides a ‘one-stop’ online shop window for every member town and village, encouraging customers to shop locally and online from the safety of their homes.
