Shop draws in the customers
11:00am Sunday 20th October 2013 in News
ANYONE popping into Abbotts Ann Village Shop on a drizzly afternoon last Friday would have received an even warmer welcome than usual.
Shop committee chairman Jill Else said: “There was a buzz of cheerful conversation as customers were tucking into slices of home-made cake and steaming hot mugs of tea and coffee whilst chatting with TVBC Mayor, Janet Whiteley.
“Councillor Whiteley had joined the relaxed gathering of shoppers in order to draw the winning entry of a consultation questionnaire organised by the community shop’s committee, to enable them to keep up to date with any changing needs of the village.
“It seems that the winner, who walked away with £100- worth of holiday currency, is already an enthusiastic user of the shop, writing that the staff were friendly and helpful, and that there was a wide range of products at a good price.
“Many are locally produced, including gold-award winning sausages from this shop.”
