The 29-year-old, seen in films including 2017’s Dunkirk and 2018’s Calibre, will return to his home village to support a share initiative being launched by the shop.

Shares costing £10 are now available to but until January 31, 2020.

We’ll have more information on that initiative and Jack’s visit in next week’s Southern Reporter.
