Election officials sat in the beer aisle to hand out ballot papers at the Jackpot Wines convenience store and post office on Chamberlain Road, which is owned by Sergi Singh.
Singh said he was very pleased with how the day went. “It was great,” he told OLN.
“We got some pictures in the paper and the election officials said it was 50% up on voters at previous sites in the area. We were very busy – it was a nice summery day and there was a good atmosphere.
“You’ve got to find excuses to get people through the front door and it proves the shop is part of the community. We’d definitely do it again.”
