Karen Bassett, of Whitehall Farm, Leverington Common, and her friend Jacqueline Patrick, of Gorefield, have asked Fenland District Council for permission to convert ‘Indulge’, a former hairdressers and beauty salon in Roman Bank, Leverington, into a shop which would sell home grown and locally sourced produce.

The shop, located close to the village’s church, school and post office, would open for six days a week.

Mrs Bassett said: “We would be able to signpost customers to other village amenities, at the same time providing villages with a quality choice of fruit and vegetables at competitive prices.

“We are both at a time in our lives were employment seems difficult to find and feel that making our own employment while serving the local community would indeed be a very healthy option.

“We are very committed to this project and feel it would be of great benefit to the village.”

The application is under consideration.
