We are the first full-time shop and Post Office in a church, open 7 days a week, run completely by volunteers. Come and visit us! Voted Best Village Shop & Post Office by the Countryside Alliance in 2010. We are the first Community Shop in the UK to be awarded the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service. We stock a wide range of local food produce and crafts, including everyday groceries, newspapers, household goods, wines, ciders and beers. After visiting the shop come and admire the mediaeval roof and enjoy a coffee and homemade cake in the Gallery Cafe.

Dropped in to have a snack before undertaking the 5 mile Yarpole circular walk. Enjoyed a quick meal and coffee, even managed to update my emails with their free Wi-Fi. Quiet and relaxed.
