A groceries store in a Norfolk village has been launched to support local businesses and provide the community with essentials.
The Jolly Brewers in Shouldham launched its own store Groceries on Wednesday, making it the first shop in the village.
Adam Noble, director and head chef at the restaurant, said the new business was “vital” for Shouldham and the surrounding area to ensure people had access to essentials.
“It was the right thing to do,” he added.
“Now more than ever, it is vital for our community to have access to the essentials and we are able to provide them in a safe environment.
