Have you heard the great news? We are now open until 12 noon on Sundays, thanks to our kind and willing volunteers. These extended hours provide our local customers and visitors more opportunity to shop, especially if you enjoy a lazy Sunday lay in, and why not! We will trial 9-12 Sundays throughout the summer and then review if we should continue thereafter.

Our amazing volunteers continue to keep the shop fully maintained and operational whatever the challenge and the shop and post office would not be here without them. 1 – 7 June marks Volunteers week, a time to say “THANK YOU” for the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering. All our volunteers make an invaluable contribution to keep Barham Village Store open and fully stocked for our Customers. So when you next pop in, please recognise our volunteers with a “THANK YOU” for their time and service to the community, it’s much appreciated.

Occasionally we run out of an item that a customer likes on the day they shop. You may not know that we provide an ordering service so that we can reserve the item for customers to be assured of getting what they like. We also take larger orders of items we stock e.g. an order of bread or pastries from Wilmshurst’s, the baker. The order will be delivered to the shop for the customer to collect. Requests and payments can be taken over the phone so you don’t even have to come in to order! If you have a product that is your favourite and would like to place an order, either as one off or on a regular basis, have a chat with one of our team, we are happy to help.


Don’t forget Father’s Day on June 19th. We have a number of Fathers Day cards and items suitable for gifts including a range of beers, ciders, wines and spirits, many of them locally produced. If Dad has a sweet tooth, there are plenty of sweet treats to choose from or if you’re looking for something that gives him more choice, our range of gift cards could be just the thing.


June 2nd and 3rd are Bank Holidays with an extra day marking the Platinum Jubilee celebrations and we will be open from 9 – 10:30 on these days (Post Office closed). Many congratulations to HM Queen Elizabeth for her 70 years of remarkable service!
