It may seem a little early to be talking about Christmas but from 5th November the post office will have first and second class Christmas stamps in stock. We will also have lots of Christmas goodies in store for those who like to stock up early.

The post office counter also stocks One4all multi-store Gift Cards which would make great Christmas presents for a great variety of loved ones. They can be used in over 120 high street retailers and restaurants so really are the ideal gift for tricky recipients. 

As the winter weather starts to take hold and the nights draw in perhaps more people might consider using our delivery service for groceries (and newspapers!). We had the challenges of lockdown and panic buying in the retail sector to contend with earlier in the year, and we managed to create a robust delivery system to cope and this is something we are happy to offer villagers for the future. We are happy to accept delivery instructions via messenger, facebook or over the phone.

We now have a dedicated seating area with benches on the shop forecourt to provide better seating options for those resting. The expense of this has been fully covered by a generous donation.
