The Village Shop is run by
Karen Barrett. 

The shop has been part of Martinstown for many years and features greatly in the community.

"I am privileged to live here so I am very aware of the importance of the shop and Post Office to our customers. It is a valuable resource for the village especially the older generation who rely on it for their provisions and money needs."

"I am keen to retain the traditional values in the shop offering a delivery service and the option of ordering what our customers require - be it papers, bread, fresh produce, meat, cream etc. We pride ourselves to always try to stock local produce and support our small businesses."

There is also a cafe area at the back of the shop where customers get together for a chat or a welcomed break for the many walkers and visitors to the village. In addition we offer fresh homemade soup once a week on a Thursday, along with daily homemade rolls.

As an extra element of interest we have various crafty items available made by local artists, this is something we wish to promote and encourage.

As your local village shop keeper I wanted to make a short statement about the current and possible future situation with the COVID-19 Virus.

I will be open as much as I am able and offering your everyday staple items such as milk, bread, butter, some meat, cheese and fresh fruit & vegetables to the best of my ability; and as I am supplied directly from local businesses this will hopefully continue.

A delivery service is currently being set up and will be available from the 30th March; all details will be in the next Parish Magazine. You will be able to ring a number and place your order, this is being run by village volunteers, including myself to support all that are in self isolation.

Also the Coffee Corner will be offering a home cooked meal twice a week and soup to be included in these deliveries if wanted.

I would like to say that I am currently healthy and keen to keep the shop & Post Office open and supporting you all. However, should I become unwell myself and need to self isolate I really require a pool of volunteers to please assist to keep the shop open. If this is something you could help me with please send me a private message or pop in.

As it stands I am hoping the shop will get through this uncertain time with your continued support.

Very best wishes
