Sophie Rowe, manager, said: Lemon and Jinja has grown from strength to strength over the last five years, and we are excited to see what's in store for us next. Within six months of opening the shop, we doubled in size and introduced a café. We stayed open throughout the whole of Covid-19, introducing online orders and doorstep deliveries.

“We were the place with unlimited pasta, rice, flour and toilet paper in stock, so this meant we met many wonderful, new people. We are now triple the size of our old location, with an events and workshop space upstairs, as well as working desks.

“We host creative workshops as well as community events, like clothes swaps, period and
menopause information evenings and community litter picks. Community and sustainability
are absolutely at the heart of everything we do.”

Lemon and Jinja will be open from 10am-4pm for its fifth birthday celebrations on Sunday, March 3.
