We are doing our best to keep supplying our customers during these difficult times. Like many other shops we are running short of some items but will keep trying to restock.  If any of our customers have to self-isolate and need shopping delivered, do ring your Patch Co-ordinator (not the shop) that was on the leaflet popped through your door and we will do our best - working with Stutton Support Network - to help out.

The Shop is on the B1080 Manningtree to Holbrook Road between Bentley Lane and the Gardener’s Arms pub at the western end of the village.

 

Bus Service No. 92 Ipswich / East Bergholt buses pass through the village regularly and there is a bus stop adjacent to the Hall and Shop car-park.

Shop re-opening  

 

Opening hours are Monday-Friday 9 -4; Saturday 9-12 and Sunday 9-11.  

 

Only two customers in the shop at a time and there is a one way system around the shop, designed to facilitate social distancing, with the exit via the side door. There is hand sanitiser at the entrance for customers’ use.  The health of our customers and volunteers remains paramount and these arrangements will be kept under review. We are trying to be cash free and the cashback facility will not be available.  

 

We look forward to seeing you and we thank you for your ongoing support.

Orders and deliveries

We will still take orders for delivery to customers who are shielding or self-isolating.

Orders placed before 12 on a weekday will be delivered that afternoon after 3.  Orders placed before 11 on Saturday or Sunday will be delivered on Monday afternoon. 

Payment can be taken by card over the phone or if you would like to open an account with us, just let one of our volunteers know.

Wholefood supplies - Did you know that we stock quite a range of wholefoods, some from Suma Co-operative and some supplied by Manningtree Wholefoods store? And we’re always willing to try and respond to requests.
