 A great evening was had by all at the skittles night held by the shop last month.  The winners with the highest men’s and women’s scores were Alan and Moya, and we made a whopping £350!  Thank you to the Thorncombe Sports and Social Club for being such a great venue, and to everyone that came and everyone that helped

On Thursday 30 November, we’re holding a ‘Call My Bluff’ evening in the village hall.  Tickets are just £12.50 and this will include a two-course supper with local gin and vodka tastings.  You’ll also be able to chat to valuers from auction house Bearnes, Hampton and Littlewood who will bring some interesting items for you to guess how much each is worth.  Tickets are available in the shop.
Christmas isn’t far away and we’ve already got a new selection of illuminated decorations available, as well as extra special scarves, socks, hats and gloves to keep you warm as the weather turns increasingly wintry.  We’ve even got hot water bottles so you can be really snuggly!
On Saturday 9 December, we’ll be having our special Christmas event in the shop with Christmas music and songs, and a special two-course lunch with soup and dessert.  Come in and see, taste and enjoy.
Please don’t forget to nominate your shop for a Rural Oscar in the Village Shop/Post Office category.  You can vote online at and the closing date is Monday 13 November.
We’d like to thank everyone who supports our great shop from the smallest purchase of a 5 p sweet to a brimming basket of goodies.  We love you coming in even if it’s just for a smile or a chat.  We hope to see you soon.
