Ruddington’s New Photo Printing Service

Whilst many people nowadays use their smartphones, tablets or computer displays for digitally viewing photographs, it’s always nice to have the option to print them out. This can be to share them with others who’re not into the new technology, pass pictures around in a more traditional way or put them into a photo frame for the mantlepiece. For Ruddingtonians who wish to do this in top quality, Saul Isaac Photography has just launched a brand new photo printing facility. The successful business is run by village residents Michelle and Carl Amess…

Principal Stacey Green is a fully qualified I.S.T.D teacher with years of experience both as a performer and choreographer. She launched ‘Freedom’ in our village in 2002 with the motto “Training tomorrow’s stars…
