Christmas arrives in Offwell

Offwell’s community shop stocks up for the festive season with its new Christmas range.

Tinsel is decorating the shelves at Offwell’s community shop as volunteers gear up for Christmas.

They got into the festive spirit last week - to promote the wide range of local produce on offer, from fresh bread and meats to chutneys and apple juice.

Christmas cards and wrapping paper complement the festive range, along with the shop’s popular PostPoint counter.

The shop, earmarked for purpose-built premises, is open from 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 5.30pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday and Saturday the shop closes at 12.30pm.
