A Hadleigh charity shop had a star visitor this weekend as comedian TV personality Griff Rhys Jones turned up to cut the ribbon at its new store.

To celebrate Hadleigh Thrift Shop’s move next door to larger premises, Jones came along, giving a speech, as well donating a number of items to sell in the shop.

The charity store in the High Street, run by Barbara Boyd, uses its profits to support other charities and organisations in Hadleigh including scout and guide groups and amateur dramatic societies.
