Tea Party and Marmalade!

Join us to celebrate the Village Stores' 5th birthday at our special tea party on Sunday 2nd August from 3pm to 5pm. We'll be outside in the Village Stores car park (indoors if wet) and will have wonderful cakes to tempt you with. The event is free and everyone is welcome.

Our very own delicious Seville Orange Marmalade is now on sale, specially made for us in the village by Alison Hedges. Jars are £3.25 each and are disappearing fast!

Shopping Basket Success!

Congratulations to Oscar, the winner of our £5 voucher at the Village Fete on Saturday! He was closest to guessing that buying the products in our shopping basket from the Village Stores would have been cheaper than Waitrose (by £4.38) and cheaper than Tesco (by 30p). Another excellent reason to shop in Brightwell-cum-Sotwell!

Our Village Stores basket would have cost £23.68 and was compared with online prices for Waitrose and Tesco. It contained:
4 British chicken breasts (skinned and boneless) 685g
Tims Greek Style natural yoghurt, 500g
British mince beef, 460g
Taylors Lazy Sunday coffee, 227g
4 rolls Andrex toilet paper
Taylors of Harrogate Yorkshire tea (80 bags)
6 large free range eggs
Heinz Baked Beans, 415g
Kelloggs Corn Flakes, 500g
