THE MAYOR of Haslemere, Councillor Simon Dear, cut the ribbon to open Age UK Surrey’s first ever Vintage Store opposite the Esso garage in Junction Place, Wey Hill, on Thursday, March 10.

“A new style of charity shop,” the Vintage Store aims to reuse and recycle great quality items at very good prices to generate income for Age UK Surrey, which is independent of the main charity, to be spent in the county.

But it does not accept certain items, including electrical items, CDs, DVDs, large furniture and toys.

Speaking after a busy opening day, Sue Zirps, Age UK Surrey chief executive, said: “I am thrilled we have this fantastic opportunity of a prominent high street location in Wey Hill, Haslemere.

“As an independent Surrey charity, we need to raise local funds to deliver local services.  Our very first charity Vintage Store will give us a vital revenue stream to support our services and activities for older people.

“Recycling, re-purposing and re-gifting are very important messages and I hope the local community will help us and enjoy shopping for good quality second-hand items in the Vintage Store.”

The Vintage Store, at 9-11 Junction Place, Wey Hill, is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm.

Wanted donations include ladies fashions, accessories, bric-a-brac, gentleman’s garments and books.

But the shop is unable to accept electrical goods, videos/CDs/DVDs/Blu-Ray, large items of furniture, cutlery and bladed items, and children’s toys.
