A FAMILY-RUN independent pharmacy group has taken ownership of Lloyds in Ludlow.

MSN & Lunts Pharmacy Group started running  the branch in Lower Galdeford last Thursday (June 1). 

A post on its Facebook page said: "We will be having a completely new computer system, new phone line (number will remain the same) as well as new broadband.

"Also, we will be using new suppliers to make sure we can fulfil all your medicine requirements. We therefore, ask if you could please bear with us during this time.

"On 5th June we would like to invite you all to pop into the pharmacy and any questions regarding our ongoing services will be able to be answered by members of our Head Office team.

"We very much look forward to our new venture and are excited to meet customers old and new."

The company, which provides a full range of NHS and private pharmacy services, including one off and repeat prescriptions, also has branches in Craven Arms and Church Stretton.
