An ice cream shop owner who was in “two minds” about opening her business on the first Saturday of lockdown has said hopes the decision is “worth it”.

Layla Holbrook, the owner of Aloha, a vegan ice-cream parlour in Sheringham was open on Saturday serving people out in the seaside town take-aways.

She said: “I closed on Wednesday, and I’ve just opened for the day to see how it goes. It’s a beautiful day today and there’s lots of people walking so I’m hoping it will be worth it.”

Ms Holbrook, who was juggling running her shop with looking after her children said coronavirus precautions all felt “very normal now”.

“I was in two minds about whether or not to open so I’ve gone for it.
