CHILDREN and adults alike headed for a day of treats and sweets in celebration of a new shop opening in Crich.

The Treat Place, which officially opened its doors on Saturday, offered those in attendance a range of entertainment and plenty of delicious free samples to taste.

Rona Allen, proprietor of the new shop, said: “I really wanted to open somewhere that would serve both residents and tourists with an assortment of treats that aren’t always easy to find locally.”

The shop’s goodies include chocolates, flowers, traditional sweets, fudge, toffee, cards and coffee.
