Lockdown 2

So, we listened carefully to the message from Boris on Saturday evening and we wanted to let everyone know that Woodgreen Community Shop and Post Office will work very hard to maintain our current service for Woodgreen and the surrounding villages.

In the coming weeks, we have no immediate plans to change our opening times – we have reviewed our staff and volunteer availability and it’s looking good. Sue and Katy are constantly in touch with our local suppliers and will explore all options in order to keep our supplies coming through.

Once again, we ask for everyone to respect our protocols and the Government guidance. We will maintain our customer number limits in the building and we ask for your patience if you have to queue – we will aim to keep the area under the canopy free for you to shelter if needed!

All-Day PO Opening (weekdays only)

From Monday 2nd November, the Post Office will trial all-day opening on weekdays, from 9.00am to 5.00pm, with no lunchtime closure. Saturday opening will remain unchanged: 9am – 1pm. We hope you will find this extended service helpful, with more time to get urgent items to us before the ParcelForce collection at 2.30pm and the Royal Mail post collection at 4.15pm.

Taster Session 2

On Saturday 16th October, from 10am until 2pm, Carole and Alix were in the shop car park showcasing more of our delicious local food:

  • Ringwood Rye bread from Bakehouse 24 served with a range of pates – chicken liver, trout, crab and mushroom.
  • Our new range of fresh soups (served hot) from Crook and Churn.
  • Chilli jam from our latest local supplier, the Dorset Chilli Soup.

On the day purchases of all pates, Crook and Churn soups and Ringwood Rye benefited from 5% discount. It was another popular event, with even the local donkeys wanting to join in!
