The already colourful premises occupied by Julia’s Kitchen are now even more striking thanks to Sweetie Boutique, owned and run by Ruddington resident Sue Kosciekowski. Since relocating from Church Street, just over two years’ ago, Julia Towers found she’s had rather more space than she’s needed – even after all her cake making and party accessories were put on display.
