Following the unfortunate closure of the Edington Farm Shop we are now offering a newspaper delivery service for anyone in the village who normally obtains their newspaper with vouchers, unfortunately we cannot handle cash payments. We have arranged with Bratton shop to collect them from there and then deliver them around the village, if you would like to join this scheme please ring the village hotline 07933 143021.
Village hotline has now received 10 calls since it was setup.
Edington Farm Shop will close at 6pm this evening until further notice as they are unable to get supplies. Thank you for supporting them and them supporting the village.
A couple of messages today. Firstly from Lynn our postie, can you please try and leave your front gate open to avoid her having to touch it and possibly spreading any germs. She does wear gloves but wants to minimise any risk.
Secondly – use of the playfield.
