Although he has only owned Dicklbeburgh Stores and Post Office for seven months, Mike Humphreys has had the shop modernised and reopened.

The work took three months and has increased the floor space to enable a larger range of frozen foods, fruit and vegetables and drinks to be sold.

It is also air conditioned and the shop front was also replaced and new windows installed.

Mr Humphreys said: 'The village thinks the shop is fantastic and everyone has said they like it.

'The shop has been here for 100 years but it just needed a good revamp and modernising. We have improved the amount of produce available and a lot of it is local.'

Mr Humphreys owns the Kenninghall Stores and Post Office which he had modernised successfully and said he wanted to do the same to the Dickleburgh shop.
