CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
So many of you have told us how greatly you value our Community Shop and Post Office and how it was a real lifeline during lockdown periods.
It is only possible to sustain it because the Shop side of the business is entirely staffed by volunteers. However, we are struggling to cover our opening hours currently. Our volunteers are wonderful and committed but there are far fewer of them than when we first opened.
If we are to maintain the service that we all so greatly value, we need more help. Without it, we run a real risk of having to close the Shop at certain times. Please consider whether you could spare a couple of hours a week. It’s interesting, fun and a great way to support our villages. Whilst every hour helps, you would not be expected to commit in a rigid way. We know lives are flexible and so are we.
So if you feel you could support the shop and ensure its future please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our in-store bakery is open! Monday to Saturday we prepare:
Baguettes, Baltic Loaves, Rustic Stonebaked Wholemeal Loaves
Crossiants (plain and almond), pain au raisin, doughnuts, pain au chocolat
Apple crowns, Pastel de nata, Maple and Pecan plaits
There's a wide range of potential breads and pastries, so let us know if you think there's something else we should be baking!

Increased range of Fruit & Veg
We've invested in a brand new, purpose-built, outdoor display unit for our Fruit & Veg, which means we can stock a greater range of varieties, and more of each variety! We'll be restocking throughout the week, but if you want to be sure of getting your favourites then why not place a weekly order with us? We'll even deliver it to your door for free (within 5miles radius). Just call 07789 828423 for more details.
What's in store? Full product listings now available
By popular demand, we've created full listings of every item we stock in all the major categories. You can find links to them below, or from the 'IN THE SHOP' main menu. As always, if there's something you want but we don't seem to stock it, let us know and we'll try and get it!
CVS own-label sweets and fudge cakes
We're now stocking a new range of Creaton Village Shop sweets and fudge cakes. Sweets include White Mice, Strawberry Bonbons, Chocolate Raisins and Peanuts, Jelly Beans and Pink & White Marshmallows, while the fudge cakes come in Salted Caramel, Banoffee and Chocolate flavours.
Looking for a light lunch?
Look no further - we've got a tasty range of cheeses, pâtés, dips and sides together with a wide range of crackers including sourdough, crispbreads and oatcakes.

Focus on Local – “Freeze” by Sally Fell
Sally is one of regular volunteers in the shop, but since November she has also been providing us with a delicious range of frozen dishes. Each one is prepared by Sally in her kitchen in Hollowell, using locally sourced ingredients with no added preservatives.
She’s far more than just a handy cook though… In the 1980’s she was Head Chef at Althorp House, and followed that by being appointed Head Chef at Northampton Saints RFC. In 1994 Sally and her husband Jerry launched the Austin-Fell partnership, an outside catering business that is still going strong today.
We stock a variety of Sally’s dishes, including
* Cottage Pie * Steak & Kidney Pie * Moroccan Lamb * Vegetable Wellington * Chicken & asparagus pie * Lasagne * Vegetable Lasagne * Pork & Cider pie * Bouef Bourguignon with cheesy mash * Lancashire Hot Pot * Coq au Vin
Sally is very happy to receive feedback, so do let us know if you have any comments or suggestions for other dishes!
We've increased our range of gluten-free products (including Dove's Gluten Free flour!), in response to requests from our customers. Here's a selection below, but let us know if you think there's anything else we should stock!
Focus on Local - Joseph Morris Butchers
The business was established between the two world wars by Joseph Morris, the present proprietor’s father, in 1930 and is now in its third generation.
Animal welfare is a priority for Joseph Morris. All livestock is sourced from local farms, a practice that not only supports the local farming community but also ensures uniformity of quality. Travelling distances being short, stress for the animals is minimised.
Awareness of customer requirements sees Joseph Morris continually upgrading the service that they provide. Most recently they have opened a kitchen where they make their own pork pies, sausage rolls, patés & haslet. These new lines complement their established range of home-cooked hams, roast pork.
Focus on Local - Punjaban Curry Sauces
Punjaban is a family-run business based in Moulton Park, Northampton. Owner Charanjit Sapal (known as Charlie) is extremely passionate about getting the sauces right; she bases them on the traditional recipes she uses at home, and the sauces are free from all artificial ingredients and are gluten free.
Creaton Village Shop is run by Creaton Community Benefit Society Limited, keeping the shop and Post Office in the heart of the community.
Creaton Community Benefit Society is pleased to be supported by the National Lottery, by the LEADER Programme for North & West Northamptonshire, the Prince's Countryside Fund and by the Northamptonshire Community Foundation.
