This week’s Humans of Weston instalment comes from bead shop owner Paul Liles.

Paul has owned the Scrumpybeads shop, in St James’ Street, for the past four years.

He was asked to describe his favourite things about living in Weston and said he was a particular fan of its seaside location.

Paul said: “For starters, it (Weston) is by the sea.

“There are plenty of nice customers and lots of people come to Weston in the summer.

“Spring comes a lot earlier and the daffodils are out already.”

Paul said his first memory of Weston was of an air day he attended as a child. He said: “There were loads of people on the beach. I was chatting to a girl from a family that was sitting next to us and I asked her where she was from. She said ‘I live here’.

“I was absolutely gobsmacked. I couldn’t believe people lived in such a nice place – we have been in Weston for 11 years now.”
