We are always looking for more villagers to help run our community shop. We need people to either work behind the counter or in the shop helping with the operations; stock control, cleaning, opening and closing. Even if you can just spare a couple of hours it really makes a difference.
Please come into Wren’s Shop during Post Office hours and talk to Janeen about signing up for 1 or more hours a week.

Opened in 2006 by local celebrity author, Terry Pratchett, Wren’s Shop & Post Office has gone from strength to strength and now in our 12th year of being open 364 days Jan to Dec we are a fantastic asset to our village.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary in 2016 we raised over £78,000 to give the shop a new look inside, with additional storage and office space to make it both more enticing and easier to operate. Many visitors and friends from far and wide comment on what a great space and stock we have.
The shop provides a fantastically wide and enviable range of food with regular deliveries of dairy, vegetables and fresh meat, along with cakes, drinks including wine, beers and spirits, household/haberdashery, pet food and sundries, frozen produce and a great supply of sweets and chocolates. Whenever possible, we provide an outlet for local produce. Take a look at our Facebook page to see what is happening at any time.
We also offer many varied services;
The overall management is the responsibility of an elected management board with an AGM in May/June. The AGM is open to villagers who have purchased a ‘share holding’ of an annual membership (currently £5). Become a member and participate in the running of your village's vital community hub.
