Much more than stamps!

You can do so much more than post letters and parcels at your local Post Office!

So many banks have closed locally, but the Post Office can be used in just the same way, for individuals and small businesses alike. Use your bank card to obtain cash and pay in cheques to your bank account; obtain currency for your holiday; drop off your Amazon returns and have your Amazon parcels delivered here (it’s an Amazon hub); buy One4All and Amazon gift cards; track parcels internationally; pay bills and get electricity top-ups to name just a few.

Too many small Post Offices are also disappearing – make sure you use this one to it’s full potential in order to keep it in the village!

Cafe Area

We now have a small cafe area where you can enjoy lovely cake and hot drinks!

Together with tables and chairs there is a bar area by the front window where you can sit and watch the world (and ponies and donkeys!) go by.

There’s free WiFi, so you can catch up on those emails whilst you enjoy the “cake of the week”, having got your groceries or visited the Post Office.

Fruit & Veg

Whilst the shelves of some supermarkets are bare, those at Woodgreen Community Shop are healthily stocked with fresh peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce, together with a host of other fresh fruit and veg. With several deliveries a week, we have a constant fresh supply, with, I have to say, some of the biggest peppers I have ever seen!

Just as we kept you supplied with loo rolls during the Covid restrictions(!), we are able to keep our shelves stocked during the current salad vegetable shortage – and, of course, continue to stock a wide range of both essential and luxury foods. Pop down and see what we have – you will be surprised!


Woodgreen Community Shop has been thanked by Fordingbridge Foodbank for their “outstanding effort” in supporting their cause.

Lynda Warne, a Woodgreen resident and church coordinator of the food bank collections at Woodgreen wanted to publicly thank everyone who is donating.

Lynda works with the parish Vicar, Ruth Crosland, and another local resident, Caryl Davies, who take donations to the Fordingbridge depot up to three times a week.

Everyone is invited to donate food and drop it off inside the shop in the designated box. Products much in demand are tinned cold meats, squash, coffee, sponge puddings, rice pudding, shampoo/conditioner, mashed potato, sugar, washing up liquid, tooth brushes, deodorants and shaving foam.

And don’t forget – Woodgreen Shop is a wonderful shop providing essentials at great price, but also quality food, wine and gifts to make your day a bit special. Plus a Post Office, and, free parking!
