You may have noticed a few changes in the shop in recent weeks and if you haven’t, where have you been?! In order to facilitate the greater number of parcels we now transact along with the letter filled post bags, we needed to install a secure space to store them. Consequently, the shop till and post office counter have been moved forward to create a space behind to install a closed off secure area. This has led to the shop floor shelving position changing to make the best use of the space we have to present the large range of goods in the best way we can. So, a bit of a change which means things might not be where they used to be, but they are still there! If you can’t find something, please do ask a member of staff, we are more than happy to help.

April 23rd is officially National Asparagus Day marking the official start of the short asparagus season. We have secured a local grown supply again this year through W.L. Laslett and Sons based in Ash. From field to shop we are getting the freshest English asparagus at the best value direct from the grower. We aim to have a regular supply (weather permitting) through the short season it’s available, selling it loose rather than bunches so that you can purchase the exact quantity you want. English Asparagus is the best and the most delicious taste of summer!

Opening hours on Bank Holiday Monday 27th will be adjusted accordingly with the shop open from 09:00 until 10:30 only and the Post Office closed.
