Calling All Volunteers!


You are invited to join us for an evening of
Fun & Factual Exchange!
A social event with a purpose!
Please come along on Wednesday, 21 November 2017 to the Village Hall at 7:00pm to enjoy some wine and cheese, ample socialising opportunities and a chance to ask the many shop questions and queries you may have been storing up over the year!
We would like to cover as many of the How to? What If? Where Is? etc as you can come up with.
We would welcome any of your questions in advance, just email them to Helen at the shop or drop them in the questions box on the windowsill.
There will also be plenty of opportunity to come up with new ones on the night.
As we want to ensure there is ample wine and cheese, please do let us know but emailing us on

The End Of An Era!

After being at the helm of the Village Shop Committee for ten years, Alan Hobbs has finally escaped…..sorry….stepped down! He has been the Chairman and a key member of the committee since before the shop was even built and over the years has turned his hand to accounting, building, cleaning, electrical wiring, selling, entertaining, carpentry, legal matters, cooking, computing and so much more. What will we do without him, I hear you cry?! Well, luckily for us, both he and his lovely wife Kate will continue to Volunteer at the shop.

The Committee got together to say thank you to Alan and also to Paul Hughes, who is also stepping down as the Shop Treasurer after many years of loyal service. Sue Norris presented Alan with some vouchers.

The Committee will continue with a new Chairman, Su Wheaton and a new Treasurer, Chris Handley.

Feeling Crafty?

Local Craft Sales in the Shop
From Friday 16th Nov we would like to sell some local crafts in the shop for two weeks.
Especially suitable would be Christmas gift ideas (sorry but no food products).
If you would like some space on our display shelf, then please come in and let us know, and we’ll see if we can accommodate you.
We will not take any commission. What we sell comes directly back to you.

Happy crafting!

Coming To A Doormat Near You Soon!

Welcome Helen Hughes

We are delighted to introduce Helen Hughes as our new Admin Assistant at the shop. We are sure she will be a great asset to the team and hope you will all welcome her into the Shop family with open arms!

Farewell to Anne

After nearly four years of warmth, professionalism and dedication as our Assistant Manager, Anne is hanging up her shop apron. Fortunately for us, she has very kindly agreed to carry on as a volunteer so you will still be able to catch her behind the counter sometimes!

The shop has benefitted greatly from Anne’s diligence and expertise and I know many of you will have enjoyed working with her or just having a friendly chat. Her ever helpful manner often saw her going above and beyond the “call of duty” – from dashing home to find some bubble wrap for someone with a parcel to send, to dropping off a customer’s shopping when they could not get out – the list is long and truly indicative of Anne’s wholehearted approach to what it means to be part of a community shop.

We know you would like to join us in thanking Anne, not only for her friendliness and ready wit but also for her outstanding commitment to our Community Shop.
