BARFORD VILLAGE SHOP
(Updated April 2014)

Hope you are all well and enjoying the lighter and brighter days!

18th April – Good Friday – Hot Cross Buns and fish a plenty! 20th April – Easter Sunday – lots of Easter Eggs
21st April – Easter Monday – the Shop open as normal depending on volunteers
21st April – Queen Elizabeth II birthday.
23rd April – St George`s Day – could it be roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, or good old sausage and mash!

Our prices are just as competitive as the main supermarkets – make this one of the shops you checkout regularly.

New volunteers are always welcome. If you want to know more, pop into the shop for more information.

Being a volunteer is a great way to meet new people in the village, finding out what is going on and just being part of this great community. No experience needed. You will receive full training and always be on shift with another volunteer. Go on, give it a try, you will find it grreatly rewarding. All three hour shifts.

We are especially looking for more volunteers at the weekend.

We are also looking for someone to take on the Post office and someone to take on the finances. If you are interested, let me know.

Latest offers are featured on our website.

We are on Facebook, join us and you will hear about anything that is happening when it happens!

The Post Office is open Monday to Friday from 3:00pm to 5:15pm.

See you all in the shop soon

Thanks.
Corenna

Question - What is Barford Village Shop?
Answer
- It is a community shop, manned with volunteers, friends, neighbours, who give up their time to help. The shop sells local products from local suppliers, grown and produced locally, transported to us with less fuel, helping to keep the carbon footprint down. It supports the village and the local community. We seem to forget what it is all about, take it for granted. It becomes convenience. So next time you are served by one of our volunteers, just remember they are here because they want to.

As always, if anyone would like to be a volunteer, just pop into the shop to see what it is all about. We are a very friendly bunch and all our volunteers are approachable. Thanks for your continued support.

If you have any comments or queries about the shop or would like to volunteer and join our friendly team, our manager or call 01926 624075. We look forward to seeing you in the shop soon.
