posted April 28th 2018
The Rainbow Shop (opposite the Co-op) which sells
excellent quality second hand clothes, books, toys etc and fairly
traded goods reopens on May 5th. The shop has had a complete renovation
and now offers a really inviting place to shop, making it an attractive
place to have a drink and enjoy good company.
Over the years that the Rainbow Shop has been in existence, many
many thousands of pounds have been given to those mainly overseas
who are in need. The shop is staffed by volunteers from the churches
and community and also houses the Information Bureau.
