Village ShopSITUATIONS VACANT - Do you have 2 hours a week to spare? Or can you join our stand-by list to help out on an occasional basis? Or can you drive to the cash & carry once a month to do our shopping? 
   If the answer to any of these questions is yes then please get in touch with Val Blake via the shop to find out how you can volunteer to help your Village Shop stay open. It's a great way to meet people and you won't be left on your own. We can also promise that our till is easier to operate than your DVD recorder!

Black Bin Bags -10 for £1.75

“they are top quality and really strong”
