Denise had many decades in retail before her own business, working for her parents in their retail business. Whether it was in their ladies fashion shops, cane furniture shop, pet shop, greengrocers or jewellers, she helped them wherever they needed her.
Needing to support their young family, Denise opened her own shop when the youngest of her three children was three and her eldest child was nine.
She has worked incredibly hard, all through the children's school years which, as any parent who has little family help with the children knows, is very stressful. Many a time the children had to go to work with her, packed with craft materials and toys!
The children are now all grown up and all three of them, as well as her partner, have worked in the shop and helped on the website and are incredibly proud of their hard-working and dedicated Mum.
Denise is eternally grateful for the love, support and encouragement of her partner and children - their unwavering love is everything to her.
We hope to support Bridgwater's jewellery needs for many more years and continue to nurture lasting relationships with our customers, both in-store and online.
