In March of this year we were thrilled to reach the final four of the Village of the Year – a national competition hosted by Penelope Keith on Channel 4. We just missed out on the winning slot but are proud to have done so well. The community shop and café featured heavily in the programme: Patrick Grant (judge, previously judge of the Great British Sewing Bee) described us as ‘a community shop that is so much more than a shop . . . the beating heart of the village’. Come and join us and see for yourself what we have to offer: a warm welcome, a wide range of goods, sourced locally where possible, and a lovely café with barista coffee. We look forward to meeting you.
