The Shop and the Snow!

Winsham Shop Committee want to extend a very big thank you to Kate in particular -and, indeed, to all our staff and volunteers - for their mighty efforts to keep our brilliant Community Shop up and running when the village was hit by the 'Beast from the East'.     

Imminent bad weather predictions meant planning started a week in advance with Denise doubling our usual Monday bread order.  Kate returned from holiday on the Monday and they agreed that it was vital to stock up with all the basics in case the village was snowed in.  Tuesday's and Wednesday's bread orders were tripled and Thursday's doubled. Our freezer was filled completely with bread and all our other usual bakery products.  Extra milk, eggs, meat and cheese were ordered, as well as kindling, logs and coal. An action plan was put in place on Monday should Denise and Kate be unable to reach Winsham when the storm hit (they couldn't, as it turned out). Lynne kindly volunteered to stay in the village with her parents so she could work her normal shifts, and a rota was planned to keep the shop fully staffed at all times, using both staff and volunteers. 

And all went according to plan due to their heroic efforts!  Not surprisingly, some things did sell out - people wanted to make sure they had enough to keep them going.   But the shop really did prove itself once again as the hub of our village community.  What would we do without it?    



Winsham Shop & Post Office Update:

 Wednesday, 7th March

As part of our plans to improve our on line communication for our customers and visitors to our shop we have just launched a new Facebook page.

You can follow all the news from the shop & Post office via Facebook search' Winsham village shop & post office ' or use link on Winsham parish website

For your information we are also starting work to create a new website for Winsham Shop & Kitchen for later in the year, which will ideally go full steam ahead when we are granted change of use on The George.

All outstanding information for our change of use application was provided to South Somerset District Council by 28/2/18 and we are hopeful of validation from then shortly and will update you as soon as we have news.

As most will know the future of Winsham Shop and Post Office is open for debate. To follow the latest information CLICK HERE


Winsham Shop and Post Office has an unbroken history of 150 years of service to the people of Winsham. Over this period it has had many different proprietors, but now it is run by the village, for the village. Good value, a wide range of merchandise, local produce and friendly service meets the needs of local residents, whether they are doing their weekly shop or just popping in for a convenience or an ‘emergency’ item.

Many prices match those of the big Supermarkets. Open seven days a week, a tightly managed grocery and convenience store is a major asset to the community.
