It was brought about by a huge effort from the community and this weekend Broadwindsor Community Stores will mark its 3rd birthday.

Broadwindsor Community Shop celebrates its 3rd birthday today.

The original shop in the square closed back in August 2011.

But a huge community effort saw a new store set up in the old telephone exchange.

Supporters say the shop has gone from strength to strength and now offers a range of new services, with customers being able to pay their utility bills, top up prepayment keys and much more.

The celebrations will start at 10am through until noon. Local Chinese food producer Etangs will be cooking samples of their full range for customers to taste, and manager, Stephen Jarvis will be providing some new items from the in-store Bake Off range for tasting.

There will a number of special 'one-day only' offers as well as a lucky dip for customers.

Said Mr Jarvis: "In addition, we are delighted to announce the National Health Lottery will be launched at the shop, so if you're feeling lucky, then please call in and see us."
