MAYOR Cllr Suzanne Nuri-Nixon popped into Poppy’s Pantry open day on Thursday 22nd June to welcome the social enterprise (CIC) run shop to Wymondham.

The shop which will officially open soon, offers ecological products and wholefoods. The enterprise offers adults with a learning disability to fulfil their potential by working in an authentic retail environment, to help build their skills and confidence.

Cllr Nuri-Nixon heard from David and Sally of the CIC Realise Futures that while there are other Poppy stores, this one is the first in Norfolk, and Wymondham was chosen as the location due to the number of quality independent shops.
