Breaking News…Shop Re-opening!

Tuesday 26th May

As the nation takes its ‘baby steps’ (quote, B. Johnson) towards some form of ‘normality’, it feels the right time to re-open the shop, albeit for a limit period each morning.  We all need to follow the Government’s strict guidelines around social distancing and, in addition, a one-way system will operate.  The delivery of newspapers and grocery orders will continue for the time being for those not permitted, or not wishing, to venture out at this time.


– Shop re-opens on Tuesday 26th May
– Shop will open Mon-Sun from 8.00am – 10.30am
– Post Office open Mon-Sat (incl)
– Delivery service of newspapers & groceries to continue
– Please note: SHOP CLOSED ON BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY (25th May – no papers)


–  Social distancing restrictions will be in place with only TWO people in the shop at any one time.  Please observe this request.
–  A one-way system will operate, with the main shop door as the entrance and Skye’s bar door as the exit.
–  Anti-bacterial hand gel will be on the counter for use before shopping.
–  For those ‘shielding’ or remaining in isolation for any reason, the delivery service will continue as normal.  Please phone in on 841582 or email in the usual way.
–  Orders of groceries will continue in the same way, with most deliveries arriving with you at around 11.15am.  The earlier closing allows time for the packing of orders.
–  Papers will continue to be delivered in the mornings until further notice.
–  The credit/invoice system of payment will continue, and is preferable as I would prefer not to handle cash at this time if at all possible.

Post Office:

All Post Office services will continue as usual.  Please try to use the post office during the shop opening times of 8.00am – 10.30am.  All post office transactions can be paid for by credit/debit card or your shop credit account and, again, this is preferred where possible.
The post box is emptied twice daily, at approximately 11.30am & 4.00pm.

Thank you for your continued support, it will be good to start to see some routines return!
