It was free tea and cakes for all customers at As One Vegan Lifestyle in Lombard Street, Stourport, on Monday (25 June), as the shop closed its doors to prepare to move to bigger premises on the High Street, which it will share with Wyre Forest’s first ever vegan café, to be run by Greens Vegan Catering.

Since As One opened in February last year, Lindsey Clode and her little shop (selling vegan food items and other ethical products) have made a huge contribution to the spread of veganism in Wyre Forest, and this will no doubt continue and increase after the move.
