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.
Tuesday 27th December – Bank Holiday – the shop will be open as normal
New Year`s Eve – the shop will be open 9am to 3.30pm
New Year`s Day – the shop will be open 9am to 11am
then hours back to normal – this is all due to the fabulous volunteers that we have giving up their valuable time and especially at this busy time of the year. A BIG thank you to all of you. The shop would not survive without you! 🙂
We always try to keep our range of products up to date and different from the big supermarkets. Not only do we sell your basic groceries, we also sell some great local products and up market products.
Lots of great ideas to give your New Year`s eve festivities a boost – wine on special offers, smoked salmon, cold meat, chocolates, biscuits, mince pies, and lots more……………
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.
It is a great way to meet new people and find out what is going on in the village and you will be giving something back to the community at the same time.
Amazing day had by all. Barford Village Shop was awarded Highly Commended in the Village Shop category. It was a fantastic day. Thank you to all the volunteers, shareholders, customers and everyone who nominated us. It is a great honour to be recognised nationally for all our hard work.
