"I want to thank everyone at the Community Shop for the wonderful service you offer the local area. I am having to self-isolate, and you have all been a real support. The quality of your fruit and veg boxes, and every single thing I have ordered from you, really is excellent, and the thoughtful understanding of everyone in the shop makes the whole process of ordering and collecting a real pleasure." L.P.
"A big thank you to everyone keeping the shop up and running. You're doing an amazing job and we couldn't manage without all your hard work. We are hugely appreciative . . . being able to collect our shopping all boxed up is an absolute bonus ... and putting it in the car for me is above and beyond. I'm so grateful." H.A.
