It gives me great satisfaction to tell you that the community shop opened in the Royal Oak at 07:30 on Monday Morning having closed for the last time in the ‘Shop in a Box’ at 12:30 the previous day. Trading started without problems and by lunchtime over seventy visitors had passed through the doors. All comments received so far have been extraordinarily positive. The BBC has even run an article on their website which can be accessed via this link
None of this would have been possible without the help of the countless volunteers who have made this happen. The shop is an asset of which everybody can be proud
