A public appeal and benefit concert were set up to raise £500 for Simon Saynor, owner of the Notorious Aardvark record shop, after a window at his Waterdale store was broken last month.

Dozens of members of the public donated the cash needed to carry out repairs and a benefit concert was also held at Cask Corner pub to help bolster the appeal.

The window has now been fixed and the shop is back in business.
