A new shop is opening its doors in St Ives on April 12, when the lock-down rules extend to non-essential retail.
The new Crafty Kits outlet will be located on The Courtyard, in the town centre.
Shop owner, Jenni Tilbrook, is part of a group called Creative Mojo, which is an all-inclusive craft experience for the elderly, adults with learning and physical disabilities and those with mental health concerns.
Jenni said: "I regularly visits care homes and learning disability homes across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough for craft classes.
“We will be supplying Creative Mojo kits, which are originally designed for care homes and for adults with learning disabilities and residents with dementia.
“We are expanding into crafty kits which will be generally be for everybody, but we will also design kits that are specifically designed for people with dementia and disabilities.”
