It was great to bring together many key figures to mark the start of construction at Budgens of Holt. North Norfolk’s MP Duncan Baker joined Carl Milton (C T Baker Group Managing Director) and Sandra Taylor-Meeds (Budgens Store Manager) to get the first ceremonial spade in the ground.

We were also joined by members of the community who supported us during the devastating evening, such as the Holt Firefighter team who worked tirelessly through the night to stop the flames from spreading. The first phase to the build will see the shell built within 30 weeks. On completion in Winter 2022, the store will be 13,000 sq ft with some self-service tills and electric charging points in the car park. Holt Post Office will also return to the new store.
