Buying group Minerva Furnishers Guild has changed its name to Minerva Furniture Guild, believing the former moniker to be old-fashioned.


Group business manager Roy Beagent said the decision reflected its changing membership, many of whom are younger, with the new name more up-to-date and better reflecting the organisation.

Minerva has also signed up to exhibit at next month's Manchester Furniture Show with its earlier showing at the January Furniture Show having yielded a number of new members.
