Owners Robert and Rachel Doncaster said: "Due to current trends in Newark, we no longer need a retail space, so we are moving with the times to take our business online."

The business will launch a new website shortly, where customers can order home delivery or collection from its other shops in Claypole and Southwell.

Master classes will also move over to the Edward Avenue facility.

"This is an exciting time for the business to be able to offer our customers an easy delivery service at a wide range of times, instead of struggling to get in to see us at Newark," the couple said.

"Claypole and Southwell will not be affected in the slightest, so if you still fancy seeing our fabulous counters, please pop over to either of the shops.

"Finally, we would like to thank all our wonderful staff as well as our loyal customers, who we hope will embrace this big, but positive, change."
