SCHOOL children were the stars of the show at the opening of a new look Co-op store.

Pupils from Melbourn Primary School cut the ribbon to officially launch the revamped store in the High Street, Melbourn.

They were presented with a donation of £200 for school funds by store manager Steve Allsey.

He said: "As a community retailer it is appropriate that we involve the community in our special events

"We are delighted our local school is playing a central role in the re-launch of our store."

The new-look for the community store comes after a £260,000 revamp and now includes Access for All automatic doors and an eco-friendly refrigerator.
