Age UK’s shop on Whitley Street put on its best outfit for the Tuesday 7 March opening and the Whitley Pump got a sneak preview.

The shop has been redecorated and has a new floor, new ceiling and new light fittings. The till and counter have been relocated to the back of the shop.

Since the end of last year, the shop has also had a new manager, Carley, and an assistant manager, Jackie. Both already worked or volunteered at the shop and so will be familiar faces to regular customers.
