My Last Rayleigh Review Magazine Column

I am feeling somewhat sad this week. As many of you will be aware The Rayleigh Review Magazine will no longer be published. It was a huge and very difficult decision to come to for Paul Dunt, the editor, of this brilliant magazine but as he said in his editorial in this months edition, ‘increasing competition for a finite amount of advertising and the sheer amount of time it takes to produce a publication of…

The Perfect Mothering Sunday Treat

It’s our 20th Birthday in May

In May Squires will have been trading for twenty years!!!! Quite an achievement for anyone let alone two people who had never ran a business before. Add to that the changing face of Rayleigh High Street with Costa Coffee opening up alongside other private coffee shops, a wealth of Italian pizza restaurants and even a Subway opening up too the Rayleigh of today is hardly recognizable from that of 1996. When we first looked at…
