Dee said: “The running of the shop at the moment has been going absolutely fabulous, we have had plenty of donations because in lockdown people have been clearing their sheds and their lofts.  

“We have no end of stuff coming in, so we have been able to improve the quality of the things we have had donated which has been better. 

“We have also just had the shop painted, so that’s a bonus and lots of new volunteers, people who have decided to finish working. 

“We would really like to encourage people to keep shopping local as it really makes a big difference.”
