Date confirmed for the big move!
At last we have received the news for which we have waited so long!
Post Office Ltd. have notified us that the current Post Office will cease trading from 12.30pm on Wednesday 13th April and will re-open at our new premises in the Village Hall car park on Tuesday 19th April at 1pm. Consequently we regret that due to Post Office Ltd. directions there will be no Post Office services available between these times and are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
The current Shop with full stock will continue trading until 12.30pm on Saturday 16th April and will be open for newspapers only on Sunday 17th April.
We will be transferring the Shop stock over that weekend and hope to re-open at the new premises at 8am on Monday 18th April minus the Post Office as mentioned above. Due to the very different layout of the shop we will have to make adjustments to the current provision of some categories of stock such as newspapers, vegetables, frozen goods etc. Please bear with us during this changeover period and rest assured that any comments made will be taken into account.
We thank you all for your support over the rather difficult time since we opened as a Community Shop on 12th October 2015 and hope that you will visit us in the new premises. This is an exciting new era in local community services which we sincerely hope will continue to meet your requirements. If you have any suggestions or comments please fill in a slip in the Shop or contact our Chairman Martin Hoskins on 01432 820242 .
To cater for the anticipated increase in use we are still in need of more volunteer staff in order to cover the opening hours which initially will remain the same as at present. If you are able to spare a few hours of your time on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis we would be very pleased to hear from you. Contact Julia on the above telephone number or express your interest in the Shop and we will get back to you.
We must also give our thanks to Gill and Bernard Hughes who have kindly allowed us to remain in their premises for much longer than we had expected.
