East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) has acquired its 40th shop.

The charity will open at the former Age UK shop in Station Road, Sheringham at 10am on Thursday, August 15 and trade seven days a week.

Cutting the ribbon will be Mermaid Merchelle and Pirate Pete from Elite Productions' A Mermaizing Pirate Adventure, the show on at Sheringham Little Theatre later the same day.

Internationally-renowned Norfolk artist Lucy Loveheart, a keen supporter of EACH, is producing some bespoke pieces of art to capture the delights of Sheringham and they will be transferred into wallpaper as part of the shop's redevelopment.

Sarah Throssell, EACH shop acquisition manager, said: "Having opened doors in Cromer at the end of May we're delighted to have a companion shop opening in Sheringham.

"We've had a reorganisation of the shop floor and overhauled the sorting room, meaning we've been able to increase the levels of clothing, bric-a-brac and other such items on offer, and still have space to lay out a unique children's zone, with plenty of colouring boards and a reading desk."

The charity opened its fourth shop of 2019 in Thetford last week. Its Sheringham outlet will be EACH's 17th in Norfolk.
