The Coronavirus crisis is developing by the day and we at the Shop and Post Office want to do all we can to support our community through these challenging times and ask for your help to enable us to do this.

The Shop and Post Office will continue to stay open as the hub of the village as long as we are able to do so and as long as our suppliers can continue to supply. As you are aware, we are a community shop dependent on volunteers to run (many of whom are over 70 ). We are looking for volunteers to work with us through this crisis to enable us to stay open.

 We will need people to serve customers, clean, stock shelves and make deliveries to those unable to leave their homes – something we already do for those not mobile enough to get to us.

If you able to help, please volunteer your services to Kate in the shop or via this email address:

Please be aware that we have milk, bread and fresh fruit & vegetables deliveries daily already as well as other fresh food and meat several times a week. To be assured of getting what you want please place orders the day before by 12 noon at the latest.

We will do our very best to ensure we have the stock in when you need it but given there may be unprecedented demand any help you can give us with orders will help.

Given the number of people who are likely to be staying at home and self isolating we will be looking at the way we can best support them with home deliveries and there will be more on how this will work at the weekend.

Obviously, it would be helpful if we share the load and neighbours look out for each other and do what they can, but if you find yourself home alone and needing help then please give us a call on 01460 30225 or contact us on email:   We will do our best to provide you with supplies and the necessary support you need.

Please be respectful of others and do not use the shop if you are at all unwell or exhibiting any of the symptoms associated with the virus.
