Ice of Ixworth was named 'Boutique Clothing Store of the Year' for London and the South East by the Corporate Livewire Prestige Awards.

The store employs four other staff and has been part of Ixworth High Street for the last 14 years.

Sally was told the shop was a finalist last October, after being nominated by a customer and visited by mystery shoppers last June, but the final announcement of the winner was delayed until recently due to the Covid pandemic.

"The judges were particularly impressed by the variety of clothes on offer, which ensures all styles and occasions are easily catered for."
