PARALYMPIAN Deb Criddle opened Harveys furniture store in Taunton on Saturday (May 10), during a ‘grand launch weekend’ to raise cash for the Somerset Flood Relief Centre near Bridgwater.

Dressage star Deb, who won a gold medal and two silvers at London 2012, opened the shop at Priory Fields Retail Park.

She was joined by Taunton volunteer police cadets, who brought a police vehicle and other equipment for visitors to try on Saturday and Sunday.
