Shaftesbury Trader Turns Over A New Leaf With Fern Dorset

Heidi Kitson has changed her life for the better this year.

Following her diagnosis with vertigo, Heidi made the big decision to leave her London job and move to Shaftesbury. She has launched a home furnishing and gift business, Fern Dorset.

Heidi had planned to trade at Shaftesbury-area craft and street markets, but the pandemic put pay to that because members of her family need to self-isolate on medical grounds.

Heidi has invested her savings into a new online store, which she operates with her aunt Chris Littlewort from Enmore Green.
