This morning (Saturday) The Carnoustie Haven community charity shop officially opened the doors to its new and improved premises.

The new store at the vacant unit at 112 High Street opened at 10am with the ribbon being cut by Depute Lord Lieutenant Dr Sandy McKendrick.

A good turnout of volunteers came along for the event which marks a new chapter in the life of the project, which uses the proceeds from the sale of donated goods to be invested back into good causes in our community.

Babs Hodgens from The Carnoustie Haven said: “This is brilliant. It’s been mad this week. We actually opened on Wednesday, we had come down to straighten up a bit in the shop and make sure everything was ready for Saturday and then some customers turned up!

“We would all like to say a huge thank you to the people of Carnoustie for their support. Also to all of the people for giving donations and money, to Dr McKendrick for opening the shop for us and of course the folk at David Murray Transport who have been fantastic.”

The Carnoustie Haven is open Monday to Saturday and all donations are gratefully received.
