The King’s Centre gift shop in Wantage was very pleased to have a visit from their local MP David Johnston on Monday of this week.

The shop opened 10 years ago and belongs to Wantage Baptist Church and staffed by volunteer church members. It is a not for profit enterprise with the main aim being to reach out to the local community

The shop premises are also used by the Wantage and Grove Foodbank as a drop off and distribution centre.

The King’s Centre sells a wide range of greeting cards, Christmas cards and wonderful gifts to suit all pockets. Products are made both locally and from around the world and we support Fair Trade whenever possible.

In the past few months, more locally made products have been sourced especially wooden toys and practical gifts such as knitted babywear, bowl cosies, amazing table decorations and different blends of honey, all of which have been selling extremely well.

The staff have noticed a big increase in customers wanting traditional gifts that will last a good amount of time and made from sustainable sources such as wood.

This shop is certainly worth a visit if you are looking for personal gifts that any family member would enjoy, especially at Christmas time. They say that you can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome and you will find them in King’s Walk opposite Sainsburys cash point.
