Local weather report
Rocklands automatic weather station is reporting that it's a perishing cold, cloudy and overcast winter's evening here in the village. The temperature is 3.5°C and there's a light southerly breeze.
Our priority is the safety of our customers, volunteers, staff and the wider community. Please be patient with the shop team as it continues to adapt the service to the evolving situation. Door and shop volunteers are needed, please!
From Monday to Friday, we're open from 8.30am to 4.00pm (1.00pm on Thursdays). On Saturdays, we're open from 8.30am to 1.00pm (Post Office closed from 12.00pm). On Sundays, we're open from 8.30am to 11.00am.
It is our intention to maintain these longer opening hours throughout the winter, but this might not always be possible if we cannot recruit enough volunteers. There may be times that we have no choice but to close - thank you for your understanding on the rare occasions this happens.
If you can spare some time to help keep us open, please drop us a line on 01953 483855 or speak to any of our friendly team.

We have a full Post Office counter service available - about the only thing we can't do is passports. The Post Office keeps the same hours as the Shop, even Sundays! Deal with your post, despatch parcels, buy stamps for the birthday cards you just bought, use the Drop & Go service, buy euros and US dollars or order other currencies or withdraw cash to spend in the shop or pub. We're there to help.
Cash deposit facility
We have a new cash deposit facility at the Post Office. Customers can pay cash into their accounts at the following banks: Bank of Ireland, Clydesdale Bank, Lloyds Bank, Halifax, NatWest, RBS, Ulster Bank and Yorkshire Bank. You just need to bring a valid paying-in slip and the cash. We're going to introduce more banks that you can use this facility with soon.

Local produce and suppliers
We aim to source high quality local products wherever possible, including DJ Barnard’s Meats, ice cream and lollies from Dann's Farm, fresh bread from Hingham Bakery and a selection of plants from Walnut Tree Nursery Garden. Our customers benefit from fresher products with lower carbon footprints that directly support our local enterprises and the wider community.
