Johnsons officially reopens after ram raid

A shop in Reepham has been officially reopened 16 months after it was damaged in a ram-raid.
A “teleporter” ripped into the front of Johnsons of Reepham in April last year, and a cash machine was removed before the stolen vehicle was set alight in the street.
Owing to planning regulations, it took nearly a year to start repair work on the front of the listed building in Market Place, which has remained open for business.
The post office and shop, which was officially reopened on Wednesday 14 August, has been run by members of the Johnson family for the past 50 years.
The cash machine at Johnsons was installed in early 2017 following the closure of Reepham’s last bank in October 2015, but it has not been replaced.
An ATM is situated outside the Spar in Ollands Road.
