Kustom is at the heart of community

KUSTOM marked five years in Downend with a day of celebration to launch its store’s new look.
The family-run business has given the shop in the village centre a refit to show off the expanded range, which includes household accessories such as mirrors, lights, lamps and pictures as well as floor coverings and furniture.
The new-look store was opened by Downend and Bromley Heath Parish Council chairman Janet Biggin, with the help of Jenson, the three-year-old son of James Worgan, who co-owns the business.
Kustom was named as a Parish Champion this year by the council because of the role it plays in the community.
Mr Worgan said: “We are proud to support school and charity events in and around Downend. We like to put something back for the community.
“The shop is part of life for people in the area - lots of them wave as they go by or pop in for a cup of tea.”
Kustom has grown from a small shop in Fishponds to a business with three shops - the others are in Bedminster and Clevedon. It employs more than 20 people directly as well as self-employed fitters.
