A Burnham-On-Sea model shop is set to close down this year when its owner retires.

Keith Reynolds, 65, has begun a retirement sale at Victoria Court Models, based in Burnham’s Victoria Street.

“I opened five years ago, back in June 2014, and have built up a loyal following here,” says Keith.

“My customers are telling me they will miss me here – I do sell unique model railway items, from base boards to track, controllers, buildings and model scenery.”

He added: “I am planning to close at the end of December and am holding a retirement sale until then.”

“Many of my customers are saying they are disappointed to see us close, but the time has come.”
