AN MP has paid a visit to a revamped shop.

Meon Valley MP George Hollingbery visited the People’s Market in Hambledon to meet the owners. The store reopened in December under new management.

Mr Hollingbery met Chris Young and his daughter Georgia, who manages the store day-to-day.

He said: ‘This People’s Market is so important to Hambledon residents and there was a great deal of concern when it closed.

‘I was particularly impressed with the sheer variety of local produce which is now sold at the shop.’
