Hello Everyone.

Last month it was the Shop and Post Office’s 9th birthday and we celebrated with an amazing cake from Sugarparty. I hope you were able to enjoy a slice. (I had two or three!) We will be planning something very special for our 10th birthday in 2021.

Mother’s Day is only three weeks away and we already have a range of lovely gifts in the shop for your mum. From delicious chocolates and truffles to greetings cards and fragrant soaps – please pop in and take a look. If you’d like to show your mum just how much you care with a beautiful bouquet of flowers from Juliette we will, of course, have order forms available in the Shop.

You may have noticed some changes in our bakery items. We have recently started selling fantastic breads and pastries from SØDT, an artisan bakery in Petworth. Do give them a try – I know you’ll love them!

As part of our efforts to reduce our environmental impact we have started selling a range of eco-friendly cleaning products. Please consider buying one of these the next time you need something. We’d love to hear your feedback.

Deb Pope and Harrison Dabiri have joined our group of lovely volunteers so please say hello the next time you’re in the Shop. As always, if you’re interested in becoming a volunteer; either behind the till, or making sandwiches, then please pop into the shop and have a word with me, or email me. (Gary’s email is here.)

With best wishes,
