THE new Sainsbury’s Local store in Eastwood was officially opened last week.

The Mayor of Eastwood Ken Woodhead declared the store open alongside the manager of the Eastwood Volunteer Bureau and shop staff.

The Eastwood Volunteer Bureau is the supermaket’s chosen charity for the year and food parcels from Sainsbury’s were taken to the bureau as part of the opening last Friday, March 2.

Manager Wendy Wilcockson said: “We donated £500 to the bureau and they came over and did the food parcels themselves, and then we provided a van on the opening day to take them over.”
