The Village Shop

Are you Self-isolating at home?
Do you need a food home delivery?
We’re here to help
Call the shop on 01252 795240 or call Martin Beer on 07785 577484, ideally in the morning as we aim to deliver same day. Give the details of what you would like to order and your contact details. (We will advise if we know we are out of stock of a particular product)
Volunteers will make up the order. Then one of our Post Office team will call you back to take payment by card and arrange a time/ place to leave your shopping.
Your food order is delivered in recycled boxes or FVS paper bags (free to self-isolating customer orders) and left in the agreed location. Alternatively you can arrange a time for yourself or a friend to collect your purchases from the shop – backdoor if you prefer.
