The Autumn season is well upon us and the landscape colours are changing daily all around. Our beautiful village has attracted a number of visitors over the last months and we are delighted to have seen many stopping by the shop for supplies or refreshment. The coffee machine is up and running again, another benefit to all our community and customers. You may have seen the tables and chairs on the grass area next to the car park so that you can enjoy a coffee or tea with friends in comfort close by in the fresh air when the weather allows. If you are able to help at all in setting up or cleaning the coffee machine, we would love to hear from you. Every little helps in keeping this service running

From the 4th to the 10th October we recognise National Curry Week. Celebrated each October, it applauds the diverse culture in the UK and the many delicious dishes available to us on a daily basis. We have lots to offer in store to help you en-joy the nation’s favourite cuisine with little effort. Beginning with local supplier The Chai Stop range of frozen curries, there is something for everyone with meat, fish and vegetarian options. Have you tried Kashmiri Lamb, Chicken Dansak or South Indian Prawn Curry with a side dish of Pilau Rice, Tarka Dahl or Saag Aloo? There are many other dishes to choose from and we have all the accompaniments too; pitta breads, naan, poppadom, mango chutney and even lime pickle! And of course, there’s a range of bottled beers and lagers to choose from to wash it all down with! If you prefer to make your own curries, we have a full range of individual spices and mixed curry powders too.

Halloween on the 31st October is an event enjoyed by many, especially children, and we will stock a range of goodies as has become tradition. Watch out for these items on the promotional display table at the front of the store, there may be the odd ‘Trick or Treat’ among them!

Don’t forget the shop is now open from 08:00 to 17:30 daily Monday to Friday and 08:00 to 12:00 Saturday with the Post Office opening at 09:00 on these days. The shop is also open on Sundays from 09:00 to 10:30.
