Snow is Good!

Despite the recent freezing conditions, snow has been great for the Village Stores. We did more business than usual during the heavy snowfall and over a couple of days our takings increased by around 20%. Thank you for supporting us!

New Local Cheeses

Our new range of cheeses has just gone on sale. Try the delicious soft cheeses Wigmore, Waterloo and Rosethorne Blue and the wonderful hard cheeses Barkham Blue and Spenwood, all locally sourced.

 Open Meeting Success

Thanks very much to everyone who came to our Open Meeting in the Village Hall on 22nd January. We had some very positive news about the shop, including the fact that £2,000 has been raised towards paying off our loan.

Happy New Year!

Village Stores Open Meeting 

On Tuesday 22nd January there will be a Village Stores Open Meeting in Brightwell Village Hall at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start. This informal event, without decisions or voting, is a chance to find out about the shop’s progress and plans for the future and to discuss any ideas you may have. There will be cheese and wine, with tasters of new cheese planned for the store. Tea and coffee will also be available. Everyone is welcome. Send us an email if you’d like to come: or just let someone know in the shop. We look forward to seeing you.

Put Some Music On Your Food!

Do you remember Levi Roots appearing on Dragon’s Den and successfully pitching his Reggae Reggae Sauce? Just arrived in store are two flavours of his newly-launched Reggae Reggae Crisps. They're guaranteed to brighten up a winter's evening!
