“At a time when we hear of banks, shops and Post Offices closing in small villages, it was really encouraging to come along to the refurbished shop in Anna Valley. It is a vote of confidence in the local community, who are determined to keep their local shop by using it.”
Sir George bought his copy of the Andover Advertiser in the shop, being served by Tony Porteous, son of the owners.
