Most of the refurbishment has been done on what was Christopher’s Village Shop which closed in September and the new shop which will trade as Woods of Hollingbourne LLC will open on Monday 11th November. The shop is in the centre of the Eyhorne Street Conservation area and plans to offer a wider range of products than the previous shop including alcohol. During the week the shop will be open from 7am to 7pm and the weekly Post Office is expected to resume on Wednesdays from 10am to 1pm.
Christopher Rudgard will continue to provide newspapers every morning from his house at 65 Eyhorne Street until Woods of Hollingbourne is up and running and selling newspapers. Proprietors Martin and Julie Woods plan to launch a website for the shop shortly.
