UDPDATE 19th JULY
Because of the pandemic we are working with a much-reduced pool of volunteers so we have reduced our hours to ensure we stay open and provide you all with a service.
We have HAND-SANITISER outside the main door – PLEASE use it – and disposable gloves for choosing the fruit and veg products outside. We have to make sure people keep the statutory 2 metres apart, so we’d be grateful if you would check before entering that there are no more than TWO other shoppers in our narrow aisles: a short wait will keep everybody from potential cross-contamination.
YOU MUST STILL WEAR A MASK TO SHOP – we have some for sale if you forget yours.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation in these persistently peculiar times!

CHRIS ROBERTS MEMORIAL FUND
Whitbourne Village Shop has earmarked a sum to be distributed to eligible good causes that benefit Whitbourne area residents: anyone with a project that meets the grant criteria in the Advisory Notes is invited to apply for funding. Grant applications will be considered by a Grants Panel which will assess each application and decide whether it can be supported. The Grants Panel will ideally consist of three people nominated by the Shop Management Committee and three people from the local community (we are calling these “community representatives”). You must be a resident of Whitbourne area or a volunteer for Whitbourne shop to apply.
Forms for anyone interested in serving as a representative on the Panel or applying for a grant are available in the shop from 1st April. You can also apply by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Peter Cooks Bread deliver to our shop: there are previously-placed regular orders and a few spares. If you’d like to make sure of getting your teeth into this fabulous food, please place an order in the shop by Tuesdays for delivery on Saturdays.
Spectacularly delicious Vegan croissants are now available to pre-order, by Tuesday, for Saturday.
Whitbourne Community Shop
is a local convenience store that stocks all the staples. And if it doesn’t, you can usually ask for them to be ordered if there’s a reasonable chance they’ll sell.
We don’t pretend to compete with the supermarkets on price but there are many items from Apples to Zucchini at or below what you can expect to pay in Bromyard or Worcester. And if you take account of the saving on time and fuel you’ll see that shopping in the village makes sense.
Our speciality is local food. We have carefully made, high-quality bread, cakes, chutney, wine, beer, cider, juices – all from within a 30-mile radius.
Whitbourne Village Shop is owned by its shareholders and run by volunteers. The profits we make are re-invested in the Shop and the community.
You will find us in the village, next to the pub – The Live Inn at Whitbourne.
