At Enjoy Harpenden More, we would like to celebrate the great Harpenden businesses which thrive in our town.

Every week we will be showcasing a different business - next up, it is Thorns.

Founded in 1918, this tobacconists is family run and offers an assortment of items including sweets, pipes, and tobacco.

Outside the shop front a miniature handmade World War One diorama is on display until December.

It depicts soldiers on both sides with tiny lights for fires and a moving sniper, plus a trench and tanks.
