The Mayor of Harpenden attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony to re-open a charity shop after refurbishment.

The Age UK shop in Harding Parade, Station Road, was reopened on Wednesday, April 11 after being closed for refurbishment so it would be in line with current fire regulations.

Cllr Rosemary Farmer, the Mayor of Harpenden, officially opened the shop, which has been part of the community since it first opened in 1986.

Shop manager Alison said: “We are now thrilled to be open again and to welcome back our very valuable volunteers, who we could not manage without, and of course our customers who have supported us all these years. If anyone would like to volunteer please call in and have a chat with us.”

The shop, which sells second-hand clothes, toys, accessories and bric-a-brac, as well as a range of new goods, is one of just over 400 Age UK shops in the country.
