Bury St Edmunds shop Javelin holds 30th Birthday Party to support Barnardo's Invisible Lives




It was three decades in the making, but Javelin’s Birthday Party was worth the wait for shoppers and business owners who enjoyed the celebration last week.

Jeremy and Joanna Clayton, who own the fashion shop in Abbeygate Street, Bury St Edmunds, marked 30 years with a fashion show, as well as a drinks reception in Gastrono-me.

“It exceeded all expectations,” said Jeremy, who converted the former sports shop into a fashion business after taking the reigns of his father’s company in 1989.

“A saxophonist started the party and everybody got into the vibe.

“We are really pleased with the catwalk show, which showed our autumn collection. Our models were aged between 16 and 68, which reflects the diversity of our customers - a unique selling point.

“The response from everybody who came was overwhelming.”

The 30th Birthday Party doubled as a fundraiser for Barnardo’s project Invisible Lives - which aims to tackle antisocial behaviour by educating young people.
