A ceramics shop in Cheam is celebrating its 15th birthday.

Charlotte Harris set up Village Ceramics in July 1997 with some help from her grandfather and aunt.

She was 17 years old at the time and was completing her A Levels at Nescot College in Epsom.

She said: "Throughout the 15 years, my mum and dad and two sisters Lucy and Georgiee have helped and worked in the studio and now my husband Jay has come on board to help with the business."

The pottery shop gives people the chance to make clay keepsakes as well as painting the items.

Mrs Harris, who is married with three children, also makes cupcakes and cakes to sell in the studio to raise money for Help for Heroes.
