Winsham Shop Facemask policy -19th July 

 In light of Government changes on 19th July we respectfully ask - for the protection of our whole community - that you continue to wear a face mask when you visit our Shop and Post Office.

We are well aware that the wearing of masks is now optional and that many of you will be delighted to lose yours; you may well feel protected and safe owing to having been double vaccinated. We will all be very happy when they will no longer be considered necessary.

However, with case rates rising, by no means everyone in our community has had the opportunity to be vaccinated and others still feel incredibly vulnerable. This is why we are asking for your support with this request in these challenging times.

Winsham Parish Council sends a 'thank-you 'letter to Winsham Shop and Post Office.....

Dear Committee Members, Staff and Volunteers,

 On behalf of the village, the Parish Council would like to thank you all for everything you have done over the past difficult year. 

Winsham would have been a sadder – and hungrier – place without your amazing and efficient work.  The operation of the shop has been outstanding in providing the village with all the basic needs, as well as much more and delivering to those who were not able to get to the shop themselves.  All of us who were lucky enough to be able to get to the shop received an unfailingly cheerful and cheering welcome.

During the first lockdown not only did you provide this valuable service, you also supported the community in organising volunteers to carry out dog walking etc for those who were unable to get out.

We are very lucky to have such a strong community shop and you certainly kept us all going.

THANK YOU!

 Winsham Parish Council

This is stated for each product where relevant.
