Founding member, Jane Main, from Sisters&Daughters Boutique said: "The Weston Collective exists to showcase the works of independent businesses from our local area including retailers, artists, crafts people, musicians and designers to strengthen the community of Weston and encourage the regeneration of the town centre.

"We want to see the local community come out and support this new initiative and help us to bring more choice to our High Street."
