Truly Scrumptious to Close

We were saddened to hear yesterday that beauty salon, Truly Scrumptious, is to close on 1st June 2018.

They announced on their Facebook page that whilst the business has grown, since opening in 2015, they have not been able to make it an ongoing viable location due to customer numbers and rising costs. Craig Killick, Managing Director, confirmed that this decision did not affect their other branches, the closest ones being in Andover and Basingstoke, and assured customers who have outstanding treatment courses or vouchers that they will be honoured at the Basingstoke-based salon or refunded.

We will be very sad to see Truly Scrumptious leave our High Street and thank Craig and his team for being a part of the Overton Business Association.


New Committee for the OBA

We are delighted to announce that the committee for 2018-2019 consists of the following OBA members:

Lucy Sloane-Williams - Co-Chair
Ian Clarke - Co-Chair
Alexis Walmsley - Treasurer
Kate Llewellyn - Secretary
Ben Hand
Sharon Jay
Martin Fielder

We would love to have more committee members to help drive forward the association and take on small roles and tasks to help spread the load. "Many hands make light work" as the saying goes! We would be keen to have someone to help with social events and also to support marketing, however this is not an exclusive list.

If you have any questions or would like to find out more, email Secretary, Kate Llewellyn, at

Our first meeting will take place on Wednesday 18th April.


Honesty in Caviste

Caviste reopened on Friday following their full refurbishment. The shop looks very smart and beautifully finished. Do go and check out the new layout.

Within the space a new coffee bar is also now up and running, run by the Honesty Group, who also have a cafe in Kingsclere.

They will be serving their own blend of coffee, as well as hot and cold lunches, sandwiches, cakes and biscuits. Some of which are gluten free.

The cafe will be open Monday to Saturday from 8am until 4pm, which is different to the Caviste opening times, so please be aware. 

As part of Caviste's upcoming plans, they are doing their first ‘Friday Night Wine Bar’ on Friday 6th April. They will be serving an aromatic white, a crisp Provence rose and an Italian red by the glass – all for £3.75 a 125ml glass, from 5pm-8pm. Customers can also have any bottle off the shelves opened, for a small corkage amount.
