It’s a Nisa way to do business

Have your say

A refurbished shop in Sutton Bridge is staging a free family fun day on Saturday.

Formerly known as Bridge Super Store, the newly re-branded Nisa Local will transform its Bridge Road forecourt into a play area from 11am-2pm.

Shop owner Veena Odedre is hoping for a big turnout of families with children so they can enjoy a bouncy castle, face-painting, storytelling and refreshments.

Veena and her husband, Jay, took over the store in 2009 and have been regular supporters of good causes in the parish.

At the end of last year, the couple donated £1,200 to The Curlew Community Centre.

Now they are running a raffle to coincide with the shop’s revamp – which has given it a bright new look – and money raised will go to Westmere Primary School and Sutton Bridge in Bloom.

Veena said: “It’s about making a difference to the local community.”

The store has been with Nisa for a number of years, but now carries its branding.

The couple have two children of their own, Shreeya (11) and Veer (6), and are eagerly awaiting the big day on Saturday so they can welcome children from the village.

Veena said: “We would love families to come to our fun day.”
