Refresh for Tring

Living Magazines Georgina Sells and her Nonna

Tring has got off to a flying start as lockdown restrictions begin to be lifted, with new shops and eateries opening their doors.

Outgoing Mayor Roxanne Ransley said: ‘We have been fortunate to have businesses who took phone and online orders, prepared takeaway food and delivered everything from books to food to our doors.

‘The future for our High Street looks positive as new businesses prepare to open their doors, making Tring a destination for shopping and socialising with excellent independent shops and all the events planned for the summer.’

Food fans will be pleased to hear that the old Lussmans building is to be replaced with a Barracuda cafe and restaurant. The Italian food chain already has restaurants in Amersham and Watford.

Nonna’s Supper Club should be open by the time you read this. The brainchild of Tring resident Georgina Sells, the High Street building will include an Italian deli. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, you’ll be able to enjoy a very Continental experience. Georgina explains: ‘In Italy, before people go out in the evening, they enjoy Aperitivo – they’ll have perhaps a spritzer or glass of wine, along with crostini, olives and so on.’ Later, she will revive Nonna’s Supper Club, where Georgina and her Italian grandmother – or Nonna – will cook together, creating a menu of authentic Italian dishes for guests to enjoy.

Supplying bread to Nonna’s will be Culture Bakery, which conjures up delicious breads and pastries. Storia has also arrived in the High Street.
