What’s Hot in HBB Cards in Newport Pagnell?

Hayley Bastable was no stranger to greeting card retailing or being part of the community and her husband formerly ran the Post Office in Newport Pagnell and for which she undertook the card buying. However, HBB Cards (which is in the finals for this year’s Retas’ greeting card awards in the Best Newcomer or New Branch category) is very much Hayley’s baby!
