A big thank you to everyone who came to our 1st year party on Saturday afternoon.  Despite the bad weather we had a good turnout and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.  Thank you also for the cards and flowers we received.  Here are some pics of the shop decorated in readiness.








 
The party might be over but the shop still needs your support - please do stop by and see what we have to offer - it might be more than you think!

A Year in Great Bedwyn

On April 5th  2013 Cathy and Lucy will be celebrating 1 year in the Great Bedwyn Post Office shop.

Groceries and local produce
 
Just over a year ago the future of the Post Office shop was uncertain.  Despite the continuing recession, we have managed to keep the business running and we are very grateful to all of you who have supported us throughout the year. 
Post Office with free cash withdrawals & currency
 
 Whilst we have made some changes, we have tried to retain the shops’ integral character and hope it continues to be an asset to the village.  However, in order to remain a viable concern the shop and Post Office need the ongoing regular support of the villagers of Great Bedwyn and surrounds.  Of course, customers from further afield are also most welcome.
Plants & garden accessories
 
You will know that with so much competition from chain stores and supermarkets it is nowadays very difficult for independent shops to survive – particularly in a village location with limited passing trade.  We therefore rely on you for our custom. 

Greetings Cards for all occassions

We clearly cannot compete with the high street on price and product range but we work hard to find the mix of products and prices that will encourage you come to us first, before making the trip into town.  We hope we have achieved the right balance.
Bird seeds,pet foods & bedding
 
 
We’re having a Party!
To celebrate our first year in Great Bedwyn we are holding a little celebration with a nostalgic theme on Saturday 13th
April 2013 from 2-5pm,  at Great Bedwyn Post Office Shop. 
Gifts and handmade
 
 We will have birthday cake, drinks and snacks, stalls and displays.  Please come along, take a look around the shop and show your support. 
Ecover and Fair Trade products
 
Your local shop needs you!

Not long until Easter and we have been dressing the windows with eggs, chicks and bunnies.
 

We have some cute craft kits to keep the young ones (or the old ones) entertained, especially as the weather doesn't look too promising.

 
Delightful Easter decorations and gift ideas.

 
And of course, Easter cards and chocolates - something for everyone!

This Saturday 9th March, we are having a stall at the Eenie Meenie Market in Hungerford.  We will be taking a selection of items from the shop.
 
 
Currently we have some planted up gift baskets and these cute cup and saucers.  Perfect for mum on Sunday!
