Villagers celebrate shop's first birthday
12:00pm Wednesday 18th September 2013 in News
RESIDENTS gathered to celebrate the first anniversary of the reopening of the only shop in their village.
Great Oakley Convenience Store held an hour-long coffee morning and cake party with crowds spilling onto the street and lively music playing.
New owners Mr Kay Koritto and his wife Emilin hosted the event to mark the shop being open for a year after a period of uncertainty meant it had been closed.
Villagers are urged to continue to use the shop or risk losing it again.
