Our village community shop is run entirely by volunteers and our ethos is that wherever possible we will seek to reduce packaging and avoid single-use plastic.
In total over 60 volunteers from the village and surrounding areas regularly give up their time to help run the shop.
We have our Volunteer Co-ordinator who coordinates all our volunteers, takes care of their training and well being.
We are also an approved placement for Kickstart, Prince’s Trust and DofE (Duke of Edinburgh) young people.
The shop is organised around our different product offerings covering Convenience Goods, Filling Station, Dairy, Fresh Meats, Bakery, Fruit+Veg, Confectionary, Cakes, Frozen, Beers, Wines and Spirits .
Our 'Filling Station' is dedicated to zero packaging with over 250 lines including laundry products, herbs, spices, dried foods , tea , coffee beans etc where you can buy just the amount you require using your own container, paper bags or purchase one of our jars /bottles.
We support many local producers, suppliers and small businesses including milk in glass bottles from a local dairy, meat, artisan baked goods, fresh fruit and vegetables, artisan chocolate alongside fresh cakes made daily in the village and local ice cream.
The convenience side of the village shop has a wide range of canned and dried goods, drinks, household goods and confectionery. The shop also stocks a range of gluten free, vegan and vegetarian products to cater for every customer.
Our beers and lagers cover all the most popular brands with our Craft Ales and Ciders from either local breweries or from breweries specialising in Vegan, Organic or Gluten Free.
Our Wines are sourced for us by Byrnes of Clitheroe and we try to ensure we offer good value for money across a large range of wine styles.
Some white/Rose wines are available chilled alongside our lagers.
Popular spirits are located behind the till alongside our artisan gins.
Finally we also stock high quality sustainable products to help combat waste and plastic pollution. This includes bamboo toothbrushes, compostable cleaning cloths, plastic free toiletries and wooden washing up brushes.

We like to look after our loyal customers and so , right from the outset, we have operated a loyalty scheme giving you 1p in the pound back whenever you shop with us.
Its easy - ask at the till for a Loyalty Card and we'll load it up with points every time you shop.
We only record your name and postcode, just so that if you loose your card we can get you a brand new one and transfer your points . We will never use your data for any other purpose.
You then also use the same card when you take out books and jigsaws from the library. Just pick out your books and present them and your card at the till - easy.
When you've finished just pop them back on the red trolley in the library.
Please try to return books within 3 weeks.
