Yet another award for Sulgrave Village Shop

Boxes are packed for collection or delivery. Customers are not allowed beyond the doorstep during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.

Sulgrave Village Shop and Post Office is once again in the news having received yet another accolade to add to its long list of awards and commendations.

In recognition for the support the shop has provided to the community throughout the COVID pandemic, the Lord Lieutenant of Northamptonshire, the High Sheriff of Northamptonshire and Northamptonshire County Council have jointly presented Sulgrave Village Shop with a “Rose of Northamptonshire Award” under the “Unsung Heroes of Northamptonshire” initiative. In their notification letter, the joint award committee stated “Sulgrave Village Shop has been awarded a ‘Rose of Northamptonshire Award’ – a recognition of the hard work and determination you have shown when faced with the unprecedented threat from the Coronavirus outbreak – keeping our communities together and those most at risk safe.”

This latest award is just recognition for the outstanding effort made by the staff and volunteers who run the shop to support the local community during these dark times.

The presentation of the award to the Shop Management Committee took place in a virtual ceremony on Friday 22 January 2021. A wall plaque will soon be displayed in the shop as a reminder to everyone of the central role Sulgrave Village Shop plays in the social cohesion of the district.
