What We Do


Thursday: Fresh Vegetable & Fruit Box

Lynne’s veggie box, a favourite with villagers, also includes when possible fresh flowers, fish, bread and cakes. All from the local market and delivered to your door or you can collect from the shop. These boxes do need to be pre-ordered by Tuesday 5pm.

To find out more or to place your order contact Lynne Savege . Just to say, Lynne is very good at reminding you to order with her delightful newsy weekly emails.

Saturday: Fresh Croissants and Bread

We offer delicious sourdough (white or malt crunch, whole or half loaf, sliced or unsliced) and cinnamon buns from Blake’s Kitchen in Clanfield along with croissants (plain or chocolate) and baguettes Parisiens from the Co-Op.

Pre-order early in the week in the shop or by emailing Ann Choyce.  Ann too is good at reminding you to order with her weekly email.

Saturday: Coffee and Chat Mornings

We have a little more room now that we have taken over what was the Post Office. This works well for our regular Saturday morning coffee and chats.

So come visit us sometime. There is always someone around willing to chat, most often Hilary!

Fund Raising

We sometimes hold fundraising events. Details will be posted here on our webpage, in the shop and on the village noticeboards, maybe elsewhere.

These events are organised by the Shop Committee, with the proceeds given to local charities and good causes.

During the pandemic we raised over £1,100 with the proceeds given to “Wear it Pink” (Breast Cancer); Village Playground Refurbishment Fund; British Legion; Helen & Douglas House Hospice along with the purchase of a bench for the Village Centre.

Christmas time we usually hold a raffle.

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (click here for link to website)

Over the years we have mentored many young people in the village as part of this award scheme. It is good for improving confidence, interpersonal skills as well as handling cash and mental arithmetic! Presently Hilary is mentoring two young lads. Contact Hilary Skinner  for details.

Village Events

We offer supplies such as wine, beer and snacks on sale/return basis. Contact Alan Heath for further details.
