TORCHWOOD star Eve Myles has given her backing to independent shops in Cardiff’s historic arcades.
The new mum, who is set to join cast mates in the US to film the next run of the hit sci-fi series, officially opened eclectic boutique Joie de Vivre, the latest of a growing number of new retailers.
Her appearance at the shop in the High Street Arcade followed fears expressed by joint company directors Belinda Thomas and Kathryn Brock that an over-reliance on chain stores could see Cardiff’s shopping heartland become a clone of other city’s high streets.
I love this shop; it’s fabulous. I am delighted to support it. I really want it to work for all those involved.
