From the All the Volunteers and Staff of Barham Village Store, a Very Happy New Year! We hope you have enjoyed a very happy Christmas time with friends and family and are looking forward to an exciting 2024.


December was a busy month, the Post Office managing a greater number of parcels than usual along with the increase in general transactions that we have come to expect. Thank you All for being prepared and for your patience when queues were longer than usual. The Shop was busy too, sourcing and replenishing seasonal goods to meet the demand. Docker’s Sourdough has become very popular and we are receiving more customer orders. Please order well in advance or place a regular weekly order to guarantee a loaf, the baker needs time to make enough sourdough starter to meet our orders.

Have you made your new years resolution yet? If not, why not think about becoming a Loyalty Card Member at Barham Village Store? It’s free to register and once you have signed up, you will be given a card to collect loyalty stamps, one for every £10 spent. Once the card has ten stamps you will qualify for a 10% discount on your next purchase, however much you spend, there is no limit and so the more you spend the more you save! 

 Spending on tobacco products or using Barham Village Store vouchers does not qualify for a loyalty stamps, but everything else you spend at the shop till does. We also have another loyalty scheme for takeaway coffee and tea and it’s also free to join. Just ask at the shop counter to register and you can start collecting stamps immediately for both schemes.

New in store and on offer at 3 for the price of 2 until February, Chai Stop Curry Sauces including Madras, Sri Lankan and Korma varieties. Just add your own meat and/or vegetables and you have an authentic curry ready to eat without all the effort!

New in the stationery section, recyclable wrapping tape in two different widths, an eco-friendly alternative to plastic based tapes. On the same theme, we are also now using recyclable lids on the takeaway coffee cups, it can all now be binned as recyclable cardboard.
