YEOVIL AREA NEWS: Cold feet weather is perfect for Cold Feet actor to open new Pop-Up Eco Supermarket
IT was perfect “cold feet weather” which greeted Hermione Norris – star of TV dramas Cold Feet and Spooks – as she officially opened a new Pop-Up Eco Supermarket on the outskirts of Yeovil.
Hermione, who has also recently appeared in the latest series of crime drama Luther, was delighted “to do the honours” after being invited by shop creators Claire Ashton and Gaynor Soulsby.
On the first Saturday of every month the pop-up shop at Odcombe village hall will provide all the convenience along with a recycling area, a café and an area featuring repair experts and menders.
There will also be themed workshops running throughout the year.
