Meet the Team - Service with a Smile

Enza (left above) is a familiar smiling face to everyone in the Archway area, (she's lived here for 32 years!)  Experienced and knowledgeable in retail she has worked at map gift shop for over 2 years - she absolutely loves Christmas - this season she will mostly be wearing one of her many sparkly christmas jumpers!
Nadia (right above) is the first of our thespian crew!  Talented and funny we are lucky to have her in between acting jobs! Check out a clip from her showreel here acting alongside fellow thespian Declan (left below), who has just returned to us after a whistle stop tour of The Shawshank Redemption! Roisha (right below) has been our long standing Saturday Star for as long as I can remember!  Now at Uni in Sheffield studying Geography we are delighted she has come back to help us out during her Christmas holiday!

Our very own genuinely talented Loser - Sophie (in Green), who when not wrapping gifts with us runs her own theatre production company Tit4Twat

And finally - at the helm - Ian Morris a steal at only £49.95
