Bodicote Post Office owners Sally and Stuart Read were on the receiving end of some good news last week as members of the Bodfest Committee presented them with a cheque.

The donation comes after a string of break-ins and vandalism at the shop and will be used for further upgrades to the shop’s security measures.

Rachel Whitrow, treasurer for Bodfest presented the £1,150 donation. She said: “£650 was raised through a quiz night instigated by the residents of the village and £500 came from Bodfest funds. We like to support local charities but this was the exception.”

Sally said: “It’s fantastic. It really is fantastic.”
