a HUGE
to Anne and the ladies (and gents)
for the absolutely FABULOUS
Christmas Dinner served for the recent
 (alas, last after 18 years) 
drop-in lunch.
Wonderful atmosphere, wonderful company,
wonderful food...
I think a good time was had by all!
Again, THANK YOU to the ladies

we all very much appreciated it!

The Christmas Spirit!

If you wish the shop to maintain 
its current opening hours we need your help!

Our current team of Volunteers who run the shop 
have lately been depleted due to various unplanned events. 
Our situation has become critical in that 
the shop may have to remain closed for periods 
as we no longer have sufficient Volunteers
 to cover our advertised Opening Times.

We are proud that our little shop supports
 the village/s, and we are now asking for your help 
(even if it is short term) 
to help us cover the shortage of volunteers 
until some or all are able to return to the shop. 

If you are able to help us please contact 
Heather Baker on 540 196
