Selfless brothers praised for stepping up to help their North Yorkshire village through lockdown

Two teenage brothers have been praised for stepping up and voluntarily running their local village store during lockdown to help the North Yorkshire residents

Luke Greenslade, 17, opened the local shop in West Burton every day during the pandemic to make sure that members of the community had access to food.

 Aided by his brother Jack, 18, they kept the amenity going with not one day closed – with Jack dealing with community fruit and veg orders and Luke running the store.

Jack also helped his mum, Julie, to co-ordinate a shopping delivery service around villages from West Burton up to Gayle, along with helping to deliver papers from the shop.
