When the last shop closed in the Kent village of Cobham residents lost a store and a lot more besides. The loss of the 600-year-old shop knocked the heart out of the village.

Andrea Thomas reports and we meet the shop's director Kate Garner, managers Jaki and Rebecca Penfold, volunteer Delia Webster, designer Anna Gohmi, and customers John Reeves and Kalle Hogh.
