Like most mums, what Claire Hartle wanted most over the Christmas break were a few lie-ins.

But she’s had to get used to opening up at 3am five days a week.Claire had dreamed of having her own business and jumped at the chance when she heard the diner at the Parkway markets was available.

“I thought what could be better than to reopen for all the early-morning market traders and the truckers and provide a quality home-made food service for all the local companies which operate 24/7,” she says.

Claire’s Parkway Diner, at Unit 5D off Parkway Drive, serves daily specials and delivers to businesses within a mile radius. She is also planning to hire the diner out for children’s parties.”
