Firstly, thank you to everyone using the shop for adhering so well to the distancing requests and the one-way system. The experimental opening has worked really well and I am now confident that we can return pretty much to the ‘normal’ hours. The shop and Post Office will operate its usual daily services as follows:
Monday to Saturday 8.00am – 12.00pm
Sunday 8.00am – 10.30am
As we know, the South West has seen one of the lowest rates of infection and illness from the covid virus, but we are not out of the woods yet, with our ‘R’ rating higher than most of the UK. Whilst we should try to get back to some form of normality, we must also guard against complacency. Thus the shop will maintain strict caution and we will all continue to conduct ourselves within the guidelines set out by the government.
Deliveries will still be in place for those who have been advised to ‘shield’. For others still a little nervous about venturing out, you may phone in an order for collection at an agreed time.
Finally, a HUGE thank you to all those volunteers who continue to keep our village fed, happy, a fun place to be with its heart beating loudly and, most of all, SAFE!
Please remain very careful in whatever it is you do; it’s not over yet…
