The Accordion Shop in Sunningdale has recently been broken into in an overnight raid and a number of valuable instruments were taken. Proprietor Chris Lovell (pictured right with wife Julia) told us “We were away on holiday when we were told by our staff what had happened. We believe that this is highly likely to have been carried out by an organised gang who were aware of the value of the instruments as they have mainly taken only high end Italian built accordions from brands such as Cooperativa, Excelsior, Paolo Soprano and Scandalli. We are pleased to say that we are still open and trading from both the Sunningdale and Rochdale shops, and we still have plenty of accordions in stock”.

Chris went on to say “With security now enhanced we are moving on, however should any of your readers be offered any of the accordions listed below, or are suspicious of any adverts you may see online etc., please contact our Sunningdale shop on 01344 873717. Any information will be appreciated”
