New Store In Hounsdown
I was delighted to be present at the opening of the new store in Hounsdown this morning.
There was a great gathering of local people to welcome Dave, Marina, (pictured above) and the new team who will be running the store.
The Store, formerly “Harvey’s“, has been renamed “Mason’s”.
They plan to open every day and carry all the lines you might expect of a good community store.
They will also start selling newspapers by the end of next week.
I also understand that they will do a local delivery service (minimum spend £10), which will be especially useful for some of the older folk who live in Hounsdown.
It’s great to see the store finally open after such a long wait and a few “false dawns”.
I am sure we all wish them success but most importantly (as I said during the welcoming speech), it will only succeed if the community uses it regularly enough.
Please encourage your friends and neighbours to do so.

Some of the biggest threats to public services have been delayed as a result of the conservatives cancelling proposed cuts to school crossing patrols, household waste tips and bus subsidies.
