Any witnesses to a vehicle, most probably a medium van turning around in front of shop and colliding with the canopy of the village shop are asked to please step forward.
The incident happened on the morning of Wednesday 2nd June. It is presumed that it happened before opening as the noise most certainly would have alerted staff and/or customers. Volunteer, Philip Coltart noticed the damage when coming in on duty. The vehicle involved cannot have escaped without damage to the rear of their vehicle as the 6×2 inch timber has been broken. Broadwindsor Community Stores to date, have found no witnesses to the incident.
Chris Edgerley, who will be reparing it in the next couple of weeks commented “It is going to be complex to fix without taking the whole structure down but that is my problem. I have done a temporary repair to pull the whole structure together.”
Anyone with any information is asked to please let shop manager, Kevin Madder-Smith, or a senior member of the staff know, either in person, telephoning 01308 867922 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
