A MOBILE phone repair shop has officially opened its new base in Otley.

Otley Mobiles has moved to new, larger premises on Orchard Gate - directly opposite its former site in the shopping centre.

Otley Town Mayor Councillor Peter Jackson visited the business on December 21 - when Otley Chamber of Trade President Keeley Kerr was also among the guests - to declare its new base officially open.

Cllr Jackson said: “I was delighted to perform the opening of Otley Mobiles. The proprietor, Ish Sidat, has been trading for six years and has become an integral part of the community, supporting local community groups and charities.”

Mr Sidat said: “We originally opened six years ago in the kiosk opposite to the new shop.

I am extremely grateful to the people of Otley and its surrounding areas for allowing me to provide my services which has allowed me to expand to larger premises. I hope to serve my customers for many more years to come.
