We now have a beautiful mechanically-operated awning, to keep customers sheltered from the sun or rain!


Some highlights from recent Shop events…. 























The newly refurbished interior of the shop has made such a difference to the space – do come in and see for yourself. 

The kitchen now makes cooking and serving the Tuesday lunches easier, the new tables and chairs are much more comfortable. We’ve already noticed how customers are lingering over their coffees – there’s more room to spread out and chat.

The opened up space where the post office and store room used to be now houses stationery and greetings card. Don’t worry – we still have the Post Office on Monday and Wednesday mornings in the corner of the shop.





The Village Shop is very pleased that the shop was  the chosen location  for siting the new Defibrillator, right in the centre of the village. 

A Plaque to Thorncombe First Responders – Pioneers of Community Life Support was unveiled by Rosemary and Brian Walley on Saturday 6th October.
