West Down marks the refurbishment of its popular shop with a community celebration.
PARISHIONERS and supporters turned out in force to celebrate the refurbishment of the West Down Community Shop.
Thanks to a Village SOS grant through the Big Lottery, the shop now has new shelves, chiller cabinets, fridges and freezers plus updated electrical cabling and lighting.
It opened in December in the premises of the former Village Stores, whose owner had retired and now following its refurbishment visitors have already commented how ‘Tardis-like’ and roomy it is inside.
The official reopening was carried out by County Councillor Andrea Davis, followed by community events and activities to mark the occasion.
