It’s great to get good news like this and to hear that one of our customers had such a big windfall last night. Our customer base is a mix of locals as well as of course seasonal trade at weekends and coming into summer so this is a real boost for the village. This is also the biggest prize that we have ever sold so it’s very exciting. We hope the winner enjoys the win and the good news!”
