Mr Skipper, from Cromer, cut the ribbon at the East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) shop in The Terrace, Market Place today (April 12).

Mr Skipper said: 'This spacious shop is bound to do well and it was encouraging to see so many customers hard at it within minutes of opening. I take my hat off to all the volunteers who work so hard for a golden cause.'

Sandy Creasy, shop manager, said: 'We're delighted to have officially opened our doors in North Walsham.

'We've had such great support since announcing our plans to move here and we're confident the local community will be behind us. 'It was fantastic to have Keith Skipper here to cut the ribbon – and I'd like to thank to him for giving up his valuable time to show us support.'
