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.
ZUMBA® classes are dance based workouts which blend infectious rhythms from around the world with easy-to-follow choreography to provide effective, total-body workouts. I inject a bit of my own personality and use my experience in dance and choreography to ensure that my workouts are tailored to suit both the ability and agility of my class.
ZUMBA® classes are for everyone! You don’t need to be able to dance. During the workout just copy me in your own style and at your own pace. As long as you’re smiling you can’t go wrong!
So if you’re looking to lose weight the fun way, you want a break from the stress of day to day life, or you just want an excuse to have a boogie then ZUMBA® classes are for you.
