Robert Scullard, Iain MacBeath & Lyn Fear

There was a great turn out for the ceremonial cutting of the ribbon by our Director of Health & Community Services, Iain Macbeath who kindly found time in his busy schedule to visit us here at the Shepherd Centre and declare the new Tuck Shop open and ready for business. Two of our guys from Outreach Robert Scullard and Lyn Fear were appointed as our resident shop assistants and will be on hand most days to help run things.

The shop will be open most days from 10.30am – 11.30 am and will sell snacks and stationary.
