Broadwindsor Community Stores opens its doors at 9am on Monday 4 March.

The facility in the old telephone exchange in Drimpton Road is the culmination of months of hard work by locals after the village shop in the Square closed 18 months ago.

Funding for the project comprises £33,000 from villagers and a Chalk and Cheese grant of £29,000.

Shop manager Sue Williams and her assistant, Jane Sloman, will be helped by an army of local volunteers.

The shop will be open on Mondays to Saturdays from 7.30am to 6pm and Sunday mornings from 8am until noon.
