By Post in Other News

THE UK’S largest dog welfare charity has opened a charity shop in Petersfield.

The shop was opened by three-year-old homeless hound Nesse, who came down to the shop from the Dogs Trust’s Shoreham Rehoming Centre.

East Hampshire MP?Damian Hinds was among the guests at the opening of the shop at 31 High Street.

He said: “I’m delighted to be at the opening of the Dog’s Trust’s new Petersfield charity shop and it was a pleasure to meet staff and Nesse from Dogs Trust Shoreham. I’m sure many local people will welcome the opportunity to support a cause close to their hearts, and possibly find out more about the rehoming work done by the charity.”

Dogs Trust retail area manager Sally Harrild said: “We’re really excited to be setting up shop here in Petersfield.

“It’s a great place with a strong community spirit.

“We have already received so many generous donations but would be grateful for any extra items that can be spared.

“We’re stocking everything and anything from books and clothes to ornaments and household items so come on down and wag yourself a bargain.”

The shop will be open Monday to Saturday from 9am until 5pm.
