COUNTRYFILE presenter John Craven opened a refurbished charity shop in Banbury on Tuesday.

The former Newsround presenter cut the ribbon at Age UK in Parsons Street. He said: “Charity shops can often look drab, but not this one. It really invites people to step in.”

Manager Annie MacDonald said: “We are hoping that people will really like our newly refitted shop. “We love it as it’s so bright and colourful.”
