As The Press reported back in August, Sara Winlow bought the former Southbank Stores on the corner of Balmoral Terrace and Count de Burgh Terrace - with the dream of opening a coffee shop and florist on the ground floor and creating somewhere for herself and her son, Gabriel, to live on the first and second floors.

Despite a planning wrangle, which saw 1,300 people sign a petition backing Sara's bid, she has made it through the other side and Lapin - Flowers & Coffee is up and running.
