Legal firm to open Spalding office

A LONG-established county firm, Ringrose Law, is due to open a full service legal branch in Spalding in May or June.

The firm has submitted a change of use planning application to the district council so it can move into the former Bargain Books store in Hall Place.

Ringrose Law spokesman Sally Hubbard, head of employment law, said it’s likely eight to ten people will be employed at the branch and it will run as a full service legal firm, covering areas including conveyancing, family, employment and criminal.

She said Ringrose Law has been working in Spalding for some time, firstly at the CAB offices in The Crescent and currently from temporary offices.

l The former Judith Bosworth dress shop in The Crescent has changed hands and Austin John Interiors is relocating from Pinchbeck to open there during the first or second week of April.

Founder Nikki Austin started the firm working from home before taking on premises in Mill Green Road.

She said the move will provide more display space – and also allow her to show customers samples from her favourite carpet supplier, Wright’s, which is next door.

Mrs Austin said: “I am so passionate about great design and helping people to get it right.”

She has one part-time employee, Helen Brain, working in administration.
