South Warwickshire village joins together to open community shop





A VILLAGE’S new shop is officially open for business after Matt Western, MP for Warwick and Leamington, cut the ribbon on Friday (9th June).

Norton Lindsey’s latest community venture is located at the New Inn, the pub which was saved by the villagers.

The committee which helped save the pub worked with residents to secure more than £90,000 through donations and grants to make the project possible.
