The cost of replacing the recycling facility for Oxfam in the village will cost around £350.

One of the volunteers posted on a community Facebook page: “Angry and sad. It will take two weeks to get a replacement.

"Worse, is the cost of a new bin – £350.

"Whether it’s a charity or a business, that’s a lot of money to lose.”

She added that meantime, the shop would have to store all its recyclable waste in its limited back shop.

Volunteers have been back in the store this week to prepare for its reopening on Monday, April 26.
