The High Street Life podcast is presented by Roma Bhowmick and Leona Fensome and is a six-part series looking at life as an independent retailer on the St Albans High Street.

The series is sponsored by the St Albans BID (Business Improvement District) and will share with you, the stories, triumphs and challenges of business owners and managers who serve our community on a daily basis.

In this first episode, we chat with two fashion store female founders,  The Dressing Room's Deryane Tadd and Chloe Jame's owner, Donna Nicol. They share with us, what their journey has been like and also, how in May 2020 (and during lockdown) they each celebrated 15 years and 10 years, respectively,  as independent business owners.
