It’s an eyesore that once came top in a list of all the things the locals wanted doing in the area: “#1. Demolishing the carbuncle”.
But it has done sterling service for many decades and we salute its passing. The facilities it provided were essential for the village but there is no getting around the fact, it is absolutely hideous.
We salute the old shop but now it’s time for a brave new world with a shop complete with cafe, laptop and smartphone charging, a bakery, hot dogs and even an ice cream machine. You can self scan your check-out, it has it all!
Any day now we are promising it will be razed to the ground and it has already been replaced by a spanking brand new architect designed green Scotmid across the road.
