Our volunteers are happy with our recently renovated kitchen. With better-organised storage  and a lovely new work surface, we now feel confident that our standards of food preparation and hygiene will comfortably stay at the 5 stars we have been awarded, and the staff and volunteers can work more easily.

We are so grateful for all the donations in aid of the refurbishment.

With the end of the Breakfast Club, Thorncombe Shop is going to offer a delicious breakfast in the morning of the first Sunday in the month starting on Sunday 5th April.  More information to follow in next month’s magazine – and also look out for the posters.
Our ‘knitter natters’ are going very well, so do come and join us for tea, cake, games and crafts.   Only £3.00 for a lovely slice of cake and a tea or coffee.

Mother’s Day comes on 22nd March and Easter is only just around the corner.   Thorncombe Shop has a wide range of delicious chocolate wine and cards.   Do come in and have a browse.

Although Spring is round the corner, we can still have a cold spell.  Come into the shop for de-icer and salt.  There is also plenty of kindling and fire lighters; our new flamers natural firelighters have been a great hit this winter.

There are still a couple of numbers left in our 100 Club.  Don’t miss out on the chance to win £25 every month.


                       Very easy Fund-raising. Use this tip for your online shopping!

The incredible amount of £906 has been raised so far for our shop simply by people using the portal when buying on-line.

             It is very easy to use and surprising how many varied purchases can raise money. It costs the individual nothing at all save the effort of going through that portal. They even have a downloadable Donation Reminder which when installed brings a pop up when visiting say, John Lewis.

So far we have 46 supporters regularly using this method of buying on-line – if you haven’t tried it why not have a look at the site.  When on the site you will be invited to join and can search for Thorncombe Village Shop, it’s very simple.

Why not give it a try!
