A mid Norfolk tearoom run by a mother and daughter team for more than two decades will not be reopening its doors.
Sue’s Country Teapot, based in The Original Factory Shop off Matsell Way, in Dereham, is a family business run by Sue Mander and her daughter Becky Hunt.
But now, after 26 years of trading, it has been forced to closed following the coronavirus pandemic.
On a post shared with its followers on Facebook, its owners said: “After 26 years of hard work the business has become a casualty of Covid.
“Thank you to all the staff for all their hard work, dedication, and continued friendly atmosphere they created.

And while the cafe is closing, the other strand of the business - Teapot Catering - will continue to trade from a new location.
