Hannah Maughan moved to Amble shortly after getting married but after losing her job, decided to explore other ways of making a living.

After brainstorming ideas she came up with a plan to open The Puffin, a cafe, deli and shop which offers a range of sweet and savoury goods such as stotties, cakes, and brownies.

Hannah also sells a range of other items such as gifts, trinkets, dried goods and European snacks.

She said: “Amble and the community have been very supportive and hopefully sales should get better with the weather.

"Good feedback and a good experience should hopefully finesse that.”

The Puffin is situated at 2 Leazes St and is open Thursday to Saturday, from 10am until 6pm and Sundays between 10am and 5pm.
