Saturday 2 February saw the grand opening of the Buckland Brewer Community Shop.
There was a fantastic turnout from the village and the shop committee were delighted to welcome a number of special guests who have helped get the shop up and running. Geoffrey Cox MP helped cut the ribbon. Daniel Lobb, who helped inspired the shop logo design, cut the celebratory cake.
The committee also welcomed representatives from the Community Council of Devon, the Plunkett Foundation and the Bideford and Shebbear Methodist Circuit, plus our county district councillors Cllr Alison Boyle and Cllr Robert Hicks.
BBC Spotlight were on hand to film the opening and there was a nice package that went out on the Sunday bulletin.
A big thank you from the shop committee to everyone who helped make the day so special.
Your shop is open 7.30am to 6pm every weekday, 8am to 1pm on Saturdays and 10 to 11am on Sundays for prepaid newspapers.
