Dilton Marsh Village Store is being officially opened on Wednesday.

The convenience store and post office was closed by its previous owner in September last year prompting villagers to set up a petition to save both facilities.

New owner Matt Lawes contacted the Wiltshire Times last year to track down landlord Chris Brown. He took the business on, and has been renovating the shop over the past few months.

He said the refitted shop is ‘modern, but traditional’ and stocks more local produce, including goods from The Good Egg Company, Paxcroft Preserves and Ivy House Farm.
