Christmas is coming...

Grow A Tenner Appeal

When the Village Stores opened in 2010, building costs were higher than expected and a loan had to be taken out to cover running costs. Although the shop is a real success, we are still struggling to repay this loan and have set up an appeal with Local Giving, a not-for-profit organisation that helps local charities and community groups to raise funds. Our target is £10,000 by the end of 2013. The first £10 of every donation made will be matched by Local Giving, and with tax relief this becomes £22. £500,000 of government money has been set aside for the scheme – but it is running out fast! If you would like to help the Village Stores to secure a healthy future please visit: 
Any donation would be hugely appreciated. Thank you. Please note that the option to donate monthly will become available from Friday 7th December.

Extra Loyalty Card Points 

Our new Loyalty Card scheme is proving very popular. If you don't yet have a card, please ask for one in store. Throughout December we are giving 5 extra points for every bottle of wine sold and 10 extra points for every bottle of spirit. A great reason to stock up!

Christmas Morning Breakfast Pack

This year we're taking care of Christmas Day breakfast with a special limited-edition Breakfast Pack. The packs can be collected in store on 24th December or delivered within the village in a gift bag (at a time of your choice, up to 4pm). Each pack will contain:

6 Croissants
6 Local Eggs
6 Local Ray Park Sausages
Packet of Local Ray Park Bacon
Jar of Brightwell Honey
Loaf of Local Granary Bread
Carton of Princes Orange Juice (1 litre)
Box of Kellogg's Cornflakes (500 g)
1 Pint of Semi-Skimmed Milk

Just 30 packs will be available at a cost of £18 each, a saving of £4.50 on the regular cost of the items. To order please email (your order will be acknowledged) or pop into the Stores and speak to Steph or Margot. Payment will be due by 16th December.
