Coronation Street Stephanie Cole star to cut ribbon at new Julian House charity shop
STAR of Coronation Street and Doc Martin Stephanie Cole will be adding her support to a new Julian House charity shop, in the Market Place, Frome, by cutting the ribbon on the new premises.
Much work has been carried out over the past few weeks to get the shop ready for the official opening.
The charity said the premises needed some minor alterations but one of the most challenging tasks was generating enough stock to fill the shelves and provide replacement items.
This will be the homeless charity's third charity shop and will stock a broad range of clothes, bric-a-brac, music plus a substantial selection of quality books.

Funding manager Cecil Weir is excited at the prospects for the new shop.
Mr Weir said: "Frome is a thriving town with a vibrant retail economy.
"We are confident that customers will appreciate the quality of the stock that we put on sale and the fact that our book selection is made of titles that they'll want to read.
"Our charity shops make a valuable contribution towards the running of our frontline services – so customers get great bargains, plus they'll be helping one of the most marginalised groups in our society.
"We are delighted at Stephanie Cole's support.
"The success of the shop will depend very much on public donations like hers.
"We're particularly looking for good clean clothes, saleable bric-a-brac and books."
