Village Shop and Post Office
The shop is a “not for profit” venture and any profits will be reinvested to improve the business or used to support other community activities. The aim is to provide a selection of quality, locally produced fare not generally found in supermarkets and at competitive prices.
The Post Office is housed within the Village Shop and from Tuesdays to Fridays provides a range of services including banking and cash withdrawal facilities for customers of the Alliance and Leicester, Barclays, Co-operative Bank and Lloyds TSB. In addition, standard tariff postage stamps are available during the normal opening hours of the shop.
