Photos from the Bridgwater Oxfam reopening

August 10, 2011

The Oxfam shop on Eastover in Bridgwater, Somerset was on the brink of closure but, with Michael Eavis’s help, it has been given a new lease of life and an extensive refit.

On Saturday Michael cut the ribbon on the new store with the help of the Bootleg Beatles, who played a set alongside local bands Snakes and Sods Law and Bridgwater funny-man Callum Cook, before the afternoon closed with a set by DJ Krausey.

The sun came out and so did the Beatles’ fur jackets; smiles everywhere with the help of a mountain of bunting and a 25kw sound-system. The shop also took a record amount, despite a half-price offer on all items of clothing.’

Here are some photos from the day, courtesy of Jeff Searle and Laurie’s Furniture shop.
