Bishop's Castle loses its newsagent

I realise my concern with life in rural South Shropshire is a minority taste, though Stiperstones Primary School did make it into a recent book by David Boyle.

But it would be remiss of me not to notice this story from the Ludlow & Tenbury Wells Advertiser:
There are moves afoot to get the services of a newsagent back into Bishop's Castle. 
A group of people, including former employees, are looking at options to revive the newsagent that closed in the town a few weeks ago. 
The scheme is to look at a business that not only sells newspapers, tobacco and confectionery but also other items that people want to buy.
I wish them well. It sounds a winning business model to me.
