A NEW dog grooming business has opened in Hereford Butter Market as its owner pursues her dream after a cancer diagnosis.

Stephanie Hill is the proud owner of Essjay Grooming, which is the latest addition to the market in High Town and can be found opposite Q Comics.

At Essjay Grooming, she is offering anything from a bath and dry to the full works.


"I always knew I wanted to work with animals, but I was unsure in what way until I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had the time to think about it," she said.

Currently she doesn't plan on employing staff.

"I'm happy on my own," she said.

But if she can expand to a bigger space in the future, she may think about renting a table out, said Ms Hill.

She is also qualified to NVQ Level 2, studied at Hartpury College, and is fully insured.
