Mayor Opens New Community Food Store at the Hope Church
1st November 2023
The Mayor, Cllr Suzanne Nuri-Nixon, has officially opened the new Steps Community Food Store at the Hope Church, Ayton Road, Wymondham.
She was joined by the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Annette James, and Cllr Lucy Nixon.
They met Church members Debbie Rose and Steve Watson who have worked with volunteers, community organisations, Morgan Sindall employees and local supermarkets to make the store a reality. The Mayor said "It gives me pleasure to open this shop which will help so many people in our community. Getting to this point has been a real team effort and I applaud everyone involved for their hard work and dedication."
The store helps shoppers who may otherwise struggle to afford regular meals by offering products at 50% less than average supermarket prices. There are also free items available such as fruit, vegetables and bread. The shop is open on Tuesdays 9.15-10.45am and Thursdays 2.00-4.00pm.
