Annette and her partner Gerry, alsong with Sarah, Sharen and Annettes daughter Michala do a fantastic job running the Stores and Post Office.
You are guaranteed a good laugh (which is free!) as well as coming out with the items you originally went in for.
They have also opened up part of the shop where you can sit down for a light refreshments, and if it's a nice day you have the choice of sitting out in the garden.
Our Village shop is run by Annette Jackson & Gerry and is a great place to go, wether it's just for friendly banter, or the local paper, well, in fact for anything as it sells just about anything you could want!
Normal Stores/Shop hours of opening are:-
Monday to Saturday 7am - 5.30pm
