Local retailer All Occasion Sweet Shop had a welcome boost from a celebrity supporter after a chance exchange on social networking website Twitter.

David Brown, co-owner of the business on Moor Lane, explained: “We responded to a tweet by comedian Paddy McGuinness last week regarding some particular sweets which he remembered from his childhood.

“We sent him a parcel of some of the sweets he’d mentioned and he very kindly tweeted a photo of the box and its contents after he’d received them.”
