Entrepreneurs help each other to success
TWO newly established businesses in Gillingham have been able to offer each other a helping hand in their first days of trading.
Traditional sweet shop The Okey Store has become the first store to stock the produce of Gillingham-based fudge maker Fudge Nation.
Husband-and-wife team Marc and Carmen Maidment began creating their own fudge last month.
The couple have been busy perfecting their recipes and Mrs Maidment revealed that she had become quite popular on the school run, asking fellow parents to taste test their latest recipes.
