Owners Anthony and Sue Johns invited producers to set up in and outside the shop and cafe for the grand launch event. Appledore RNLI coxswain Martin Cox officially cut the red ribbon infront of delighted customers. Anthony said: This is quite exciting because this weekend we have been open for 10 years. This is great and now we have done this refit to make the shop here for years to come. So this is a celebration to say thank-you for everybodys support, from the staff to the locals, for all their help. The shop and cafe underwent a full refit after Johns successfully applied for Leader 5 funding.
