Marianne Carty and her colleague, Katie Pearce, are off to the House of Lords in June for a champions’ reception where they will find out if Long Compton Village Stores will be crowned overall winner nationally.

“I’m a bit nervous but I’ll have Katie with me and I’ll wear a navy blue trouser suit,” said Marianne, aged 84, who has worked at the stores for 50 years which she owns jointly with her sister, June Empson and Colin Empson who was post master at Long Compton for 30 years until the post office side of the business was closed down.
