Julia Cook, owner of Tickettyboo and Tickettyshake: I love Chippy, it’s welcoming and friendly and I wouldn’t leave now. I’ve lived abroad and in cities but I feel so settled here. There is a strong sense of community spirit. The town is walking distance from my home so I’ve never felt lonely . . . I love the Theatre and Whistlers, B&T and the Blue Boar; I love being able to go on long walks with my dogs. I can always find what I want shopping in Chippy. Whether it’s an everyday food shop, a gift for someone or a treat for myself! I love the market too. . . our customers come to us for something special and to support their local community, as it’s a 20 min drive to Witney or Banbury. . . . our shops are Aladdin’s caves, and we always have a happy fun day, so if you just fancy a natter & a browse, pop in!
