There are two new faces amongst the daytime take-away outlets in Camborne. Sharron Lipscombe-Manley and Sarah Leggett are the new owners of Delight 2 Bite and the New Camborne Deli, respectively.
Delight 2 Bite, like every other business in Cross Street, is an independent concern. Sharron has freshened the shop’s interior creating a bright and welcoming atmosphere in which to create and share freshly made sandwiches, rolls and cakes – ideal snacks, lunches or anytime treats.
After almost a decade working as the Catering Manager of Hall for Cornwall, Delight 2 Bite is the first business Sharron has owned.
She said: “I prepare all the food I sell, apart from cans of drink, crisps and bread, I even cook my own ham and chicken for sandwich fillings. It’s all made with love and locally sourced.
“People have been really supportive and I’ve built up a good sized list of regulars. The Chairman of BID Camborne, George Le Hunte, also popped in to check I was settling in, which was really encouraging and shows how much support there is for local businesses in the town.”
The New Camborne Deli is on Trelowarren Street. Its owner Sarah Leggett’s first journey into running a business too. Before taking over the shop last month Sarah worked for the National Blood Service making lifesaving deliveries around the county.
Born and bred in Camborne Sarah fancied a change and when she saw the business for sale in her home town, snapped it up.
Sarah explained: “I sell sandwiches, quiches, jacket potatoes and cakes attracting more and more customers week on week. I use fresh and, where possible, local produce – there’s a lot of excellent goods being produced so nearby it would be foolish not to take advantage.”
The shop was a deli before Sarah took over. Recognising her own enthusiasm would be enhanced by experience she kept on Tina Jose, who has worked as an assistant in the shop under previous ownership for 26 years.
BID Camborne Project Manager, Mel Martin, said: “Camborne is keeping up with current trends and improving all the time. Under new ownership these two businesses are a reflection of what local customers want – freshly made, locally sourced food at a reasonable price. They are the kind of shop that supports this town’s growing reputation as a place to choose to shop and that helps to increase footfall.”
