A FORMER PE teacher has branched out into a new business.

Angela Coleman knows the importance of warming up the muscles – now she’s helping to warm up homes as the proprietor of a woodburner business.

Romsey Woodburners, based at Timsbury, has just received a £500 Business Incentive Grant from Test Valley Borough Council (TVBC).

Her local borough councillor Tony Ward visited Angela in her showroom, next to Choice Plants, to present her with the cheque.

He said: “Entrepreneurs need all the encouragement we can give and the Business Incentive Grant is one of the ways TVBC supports our business economy.”
