Rev Graham Slingo and shop manager Lorna Seymour at the community shop grand opening
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.
With only a few weeks to go before we open, we’re lining up suppliers and figuring out what we need to order. Daily newspapers and magazines will form an important part of our offering. But, we need a good idea of what’s likely to sell. To help us, we’ve put together a short survey where you can tell us which papers and magazines that you might buy regularly.
We had a successful volunteer evening this past Wednesday at the lovely Coach and Horses. We still have spaces for more volunteers to man the shop or carry out other tasks. If you can spare a couple of hours a week or any time, please firstname.lastname@example.org
Building work should continue for another week or so. Watch out for further news about our opening. Not long to go!
