Russells British Store at Torrox: We popped into Russells in Torrox yesterday for the first time for quite a while and were so impressed by how much the shop has changed since a previous visit. It now feels like a proper supermarket and is stacked to the ceiling with wonderful products and so much choice and we came out with a loaded basket. It was full of other people stacking baskets too. Just wanted to tell those of you that live on the coast that it is well worth a visit.
