Wren's Shop

Telephone: 01747 830735

Opened in 2006 by local celebrity author, Terry Pratchett, Wren’s Shop & Post Office has gone from strength to strength and now after 11 years of being open 364 days a year 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 alcoholic), 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;

  • Daily deliveries of local break, fruit and vegetables and locally sourced meat
  • An excellent range of local cheeses, yoghurts and other dairy delivered 3 times a week
  • Newspapers
  • Dry Cleaning
  • Kindling/Firewood
  • Freshly brewed hot drinks
  • Fresh Flowers by post
  • Pet foods and other bulk items to order and discounted
  • Tickets for local events.

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.
