A TALENTED businesswoman from Creech St Michael near Taunton has made the 'difficult decision' to shut down her company.

Jo Morrison, who founded Woodcraft by JoMo in 2016, said running the business 'has been a labour of love', and expressed her gratitude to everyone who supported her over the past eight years.

Speaking on Facebook, Jo said: "After eight incredible years of pouring my heart and soul into Woodcraft By JoMo, I have made the difficult decision to close its doors.

"Running Woodcraft By JoMo has been an absolute joy and privilege. From the very beginning, it has been so much more than just a business to me — it has been a labour of love.

"However, as much as I have cherished every moment of this journey, I have come to realise that it's time for a new chapter in my life. While this decision was not made lightly, I believe it is the right one for me at this time.

"I want to express my deepest gratitude to all of you who have supported Woodcraft By JoMo over the years."

Jo, who showcased her products to the Prime Minister and Chancellor at an exclusive market in Downing Street in 2022, has started a closing down sale on her website to clear any remaining stock.
