After 10 years of hard work by the local community of Exbourne with Jacobstowe in Devon The Underground Shop (The Burrow) will open on Monday, 25th June. The Post Office will go live on the 27th June and the official opening will be on Friday, 6th July.
In December 2001 the village shop and post office in Exbourne with Jacobstowe in rural West Devon closed. This meant that villagers would have to make a journey of at least 5 miles each way to reach the nearest town for shops and services. Now after 10 years of hard work and fund raising the village has its own shop and cafe and its underground.
