    VILLAGE STORE CHANGE OF OPENING TIMES

    From Wednesday March 25th the Village Store will open at 08.30am each day, until further notice. This will help the workforce to get the store and deliveries ready in a safe environment. Please consider shopping in the afternoon when the shop is usually quieter and if you can shop on behalf of your friends/neighbours it reduces the shop footfall. They are still offering a delivery service to those vulnerable/self isolating. Thanks everyone.
