Great News and Special Offers!



By now you may have heard the wonderful news that thanks to fundraising, the kindness of so many of our friends and a very generous legacy, we should be able to pay off the Village Stores’ outstanding set-up loan by the end of 2013. We should also have funds in hand to replace or add extra cold storage units. This means the shop can face a very positive future and we’re hugely grateful to everyone who has supported us.

With supporters in mind, our Annual General Meeting is in the Village Hall at 8pm on Wednesday 19th June. The meeting is open to everyone. Please come and join us - we’d love to see you there.


While you’re in the shop, look out for our newly arrived ‘Special Offer’ signs. Ramsbury Teas are currently reduced to £3.00 a packet and our very popular Navajas Rioja wine is down from £8.49 to £7.00 a bottle. After a short break in production (the lambs needed the milk!) Spenwood cheese is now back in store.


Have you tried our brilliant new Dry Cleaners? They’re better value and quicker than before - with drop-off and pick-up times on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. Sample prices: Trousers £6.50, Two-Piece Suit £11.00. 
Another reason to go no further than the Village Stores!

New Sign!

A new sign has just been put up outside the Village Hall to make it clear where the hall, Village Stores and Post Office are. Now it's even easier to find us!

Nearly New Success

Thank you to everyone who came to our Nearly New Sale on 30th March. We raised over £350 for the shop and sold a lot of wonderful things! Thank you, too, to everyone who helped run the event and to all of you who donated clothes.

Did you know that The Independent has recently chosen Wigmore cheese as one of their 10 Best British Cheeses? This soft, brie-style cheese was described as 'smooth as a kiss and very subtle.' Surely worth dropping in for a slice!
