Come Celebrate: Saturday 4th May 2024

Please join us at the Village Shop on Saturday 4th May from 10am to 1pm to celebrate the opening of the Swimming Pool and the official opening of the Platinum Garden. We will be selling sausage baps, bacon rolls, tea and coffee.

The Shop will also be celebrating – the launch of our new range of freshly brewed coffee. Using our recently acquired coffee pod machine, the Shop will be selling a variety of coffees such as espresso, americano, latte and cappuccino. As it is a Saturday the Sop will also have a small selection of freshly baked bread, cinnamon buns and fresh croissants for sale.

Do come along!

Our Greeting Cards

Each year  proceeds from the card sales are awarded to a village charity.  At our AGM in November 2023 it was agreed that 2022/23 proceeds, an amazing £240, would be awarded to the Swinford Museum.

Recently Hilary Skinner (on behalf of the Shop) presented Diane Blackett (representing the Swinford Museum) with a cheque for £240.00p.


Whilst helping out in the Shop as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award, Alice and Rosa Dunmall designed this poster for the Shop. It is very good isn’t it?

We have managed t have the poster included in the last two issues of St Filica Newsletter.

Well done girls and thank you!
