TWO sisters who grew up in a village near Chester are moving their fashion business there in a bid to expand it.

Anika Edwards and Lottie Sandbach are in the process of relocating their successful independent easy living fashion boutique Boja Boutique from Tarporley to Farndon.

Boja Boutique will be located in the heart of the village at Top Farm, which is owned by the Barnston Estate.

The sisters are planning to open it in early November.

Anika said: “My sister and I grew up in Farndon and we have been running our ladies fashion boutique in Tarporley since 2020.

"When we saw the barn at Top Farm it was exactly what we were looking for. It’s beautiful.

“We want to grow the online side of the business and need more space for our showroom days and fashion shows.

"Top Farm is absolutely perfect for us and it’s brilliant to know so many people from growing up in the village.

“We’ve met quite a few of the neighbouring businesses already and everyone is lovely. Over the next few weeks we’ll be getting the space ready to open and we’re so excited because we’ve got lots planned.”

A second business which has recently opened at Top Farm is Charlene Baker, a permanent make-up artist with more than 20 years of experience in the beauty industry.

Her new clinic in Farndon offers both traditional and the latest innovative techniques for eyebrows, eyeliner, lip blushing and advanced skin treatments.

Charlene, who trained with Finishing Touches, said: “We offer high end luxury treatments for men and women from our lovely clinic at Top Farm in Farndon.

“Lip blushing, which is semi-permanent, tattooed make-up that tints the lips is very popular with women at the moment. We’re also seeing an increasing number of men asking for scalp micropigmentation which creates the illusion of fuller hair and jaw sculpting procedures.

“My clients come from across Cheshire and I was looking for a long time for a building with lots of character, which felt very homely and is in a wonderful setting and a good location.

“I love Farndon and everyone has been really welcoming. There’s a great community at Top Farm.”

Estate Manager Ed Barnston said: “We’re delighted to welcome two new businesses to Top Farm in Farndon and wish them both every success for the future.”
