Hughenden Valley Village Store

      For the community, by the community

Shop exterior summer (Louises Phone)
2nd Nov 2020.
 
As before, and as always your village store is here for you.  We still have our amazing group of suppliers, staff and volunteers who are able to help maintain our service.
 
This time it is a little different (better)! Along with providing next day deliveries and orders for collection, the shop will be open as usual and we will be continuing with our hot food and drink provision but on a take-away basis.
 
So, for grocery delivery or collection, as before, please just place your order by email (anytime) or by phone by 5pm and your order will be prepared the next day for delivery or for your collection.  Please remember that, as we have always done, we will deliver anything – from one emergency item – perhaps a pint of milk, a card and a stamp, Strepsils, cat food or a loaf of bread – to a full week’s worth of shopping. As it is our ethos as a community shop, to support our residents and we can deliver as often as required – this is what we are here for.
 
If, however you are able to and would like to visit in person, the shop will remain open and the highest standards of hygiene and safety are in place.  Please see our opening times below.
 
For telephone orders please call 01494 568653 or email shop@valleyshop.org
