Corner shops are so important

SIR - The recent icy conditions only emphasise the importance of the local corner shop.

The Northam Road stores in Bideford proved invaluable to many local people when the supermarkets were inaccessible.

It is really important to support these small shops as much as possible to ensure they are there when we get the next big freeze.
