New Chippenham firm Global West Travel has proved a success in its first 11 weeks and now it is introducing a range of accessories for holiday-makers.

The shop, at Borough Parade, has enjoyed booming sales in its first weeks.

Partner Janet Daws said: "The first 11 weeks have been fantastic, and all interest has been by word of mouth. Because of this, we are now progressing with our plans of the future."

Ms Daws and her partners, Pat Houston and Ron Howell, have now introduced holiday items such as, mosquito repellent, travel pillows, kettles, irons, and foreign exchange.

She said: "We want to provide our customers with everything they need for their holidays, from insurance to sun tanning cream.

"The idea is to make planning for a holiday as simple and easy as possible, wherever the destination."

Borough Parade's manager, Lionel Dicks, said: "I would like to congratulate Pat and the rest of the team at Global West Travel.

"It's fantastic to see a new local independent business doing well.

"With more customer focused ideas, I'm sure they will continue to be a great success."
