A TIMBER and building supplies firm in Bury has launched a lockdown-busting personal design service.

Bosses at Howarth, in Bright Street, have adapted their business to cope with pandemic restrictions.

An online service has been created so customers can still draw up the kitchen, bathroom or bedroom of their dreams.

Marketing manager Gavin Knowles said: “The current climate means many businesses are having to adapt in order to fulfil the needs of their customers while ensuring safe working practices.

"While people have been spending more time at home, they’ve no doubt had time to analyse their interiors and think about changes they’d like to make. We want to do our bit to help them take plans forward and strike while the iron is hot."
