A BUSINESS owner is flushed with success as he picked up a grant boost.

Paul Ballantyne has picked up a £750 Business Incentive Grant from Test Valley Borough Council after opening his new company, Andover Bathroom Collection.

With over 20 years of experience in the industry, Paul officially opened the doors to his new showroom in October 2018.

Paul said: “We’ve had a great start to the business, with many customers coming in to see our range of bathrooms on offer. We have plenty of space to show off our variety of bathrooms, which is great for customers to be able to visualise their new bathroom and also see the quality of the products.

“I am grateful to Test Valley Borough Council for the grant they have given me, which has been useful after undertaking extensive work on the showroom to make it perfect for our customers.”

Councillor Phil Lashbrook presented the cheque.

Cllr Lashbrook said: “Paul’s business is a brilliant addition to Andover’s retail offering in Andover. Customers have the opportunity to properly visualise the products available and can see their quality first hand. They are also able to benefit from Paul’s expert input.

“I am glad that the council is able to offer grants and support to businesses like Paul’s and wish him all the best for the future”.
