Richard Williams from Coventry and Warwickshire radio spent the morning at the shop talking to volunteers and customers. He started his shift at 7am setting up the newspapers, then putting the signs out with John Murphy and Goff Tilling. The volunteers and customers were interviewed live on the air.
The Duke of Kent visited Barford on Wednesday 4th May to officially open the King George`s playing fields. The children from St Peters school lined the street waving their flags as he walked to Barford Village shop. He was most impressed by the shop. He then had a lunch in the Memorial Hall before leaving. The weather was fantastic which added to the whole amazing day for the village.

We welcome new volunteers. If you would like to join our happy team, pop into the shop for more information. Our shifts are 3 hours long and you will be given full training. Come and join us and you can fit in whenever we have a gap and you are free! You do not have to do a shift every week. Many of our volunteers float and help out when they can.
