SNIP snip! Schoolchildren were given the starring role when they cut the ribbon to mark the opening of a revamped supermarket.
Youngsters from Richard Newman Primary School, Smithies, Barnsley, were given the job of officially opening the new-look Co-op food store at nearby New Lodge.
The shop has been given a £220,000 makeover with fresh signs, layout, fridges and a new in-store bakery, which will serve bread and pastries every day.
Dan Collett, store manager, said he was ‘delighted’ the Year 6 children - aged 10 and 11 - were able to take part.
He said: “As a community retailer it is appropriate we involve the community in our special events.”
The school also received a £200 donation from the Co-operative as a thank you for their involvement.
