Your village shop needs you – please show your support

Our Village Shop & Post Office – both open 7 days a week! – plays a vital role in our community, along with our School, pubs, other local businesses and community groups. It helps to make our village an attractive place to live.

But like all small village shops, it needs the support of the village community.

So please show your support and pop in regularly for all you need plus a catch-up with Sylvia!

Where else could you find a shop, Post Office, dry cleaning service and Avon Representative all under one roof?!

Thank you Surlingham.
