Andrew and Linda Childs of Belvoir Gallery have been providing picture frames, prints and gifts since they opened over two years ago.

While 57-year-old Linda had a lot of previous experience as a self-employed retailer, for her husband Andrew, aged 60, it was a completely new venture.

Fortunately their joint business has been a great success, with the couple framing everything from paintings to army uniforms, medals and even a tea brick.

Outside of work Andrew is an amateur astronomer, and hopes that the skies will be clear enough this week to catch a glimpse of the Perseid meteor shower.

Married since 1999, the couple both enjoy reading too.

Between them they have three children from previous relationships and have also fostered children including a brother and a sister for ten years.

The Welby Street shop is open 9am-5pm Monday to Wednesday, 9am-5.30pm on Thursday and Friday, and 9am-4.30pm on Saturdays.

We hope they can find a fitting frame for their caricature!
