Shop Protocols from July 19th, 2021

Although the legal requirements to maintain social distancing and wear face masks in the shop are ending from July 19th, whilst the number of people contracting Covid-19 remains high and until further notice, we ask that you follow the following protocols inside the shop:

 

Maximum of 4 Customers inside the shop at any one time.
Please note that there may be times when you will be asked to wait before entering, e.g., when new stock arrives, or being stacked.

Wear a Face Mask inside the shop at all times, unless you have a recognised exemption.

Keep your Distance
Try to maintain a 2-metre distance from other people as far as possible, to protect them and yourself.

 

We are introducing these measures to help to continue to protect our customers, our volunteers, our staff, and the NHS. We thank you for your help, understanding and patience.

Expansion and new products

We've recently reorganised the layout of the shop to accommodate an extra chiller unit. This, along with the container unit we added over the winter, has allowed us to stock many new products over the last few weeks. Here's a reminder:

Chilled Products

New desserts

Massively expanded meat range from Joseph Morris

Shelf-fillers!

 

 

Hope Springs!

To mark the change of Season, yesterday (29th March) we decided to Spring a nice surprise on visitors to the shop. Our young volunteer bakers arrived early to produce extra batches and 30 customers were rewarded with a free pastry!

In addition, our volunteer helpers delivered a fresh pastry to 58 delighted local villagers, with this accompanying note:

Hope Springs

It’s officially Spring and things are starting to open up!

Enjoy this treat from Creaton Village Shop

Many thanks, as always, to our volunteer bakers and delivery team, you really helped to make a difference and put a smile on people's faces! As a Community Shop, it's even more rewarding to give something back to the Community.

baguettes, sourdough loaves, ciabatta loaves

ciabatta rolls, soft multi-seed demi-baguettes,

We're still offering FREE home delivery (within 5 miles)! There's only a £5 minumum order, so to place an order, either call us on 07789 828423 or click here to place an order directly on the website.

If you're happy to come in to the shop but don't want to miss out on your favourite/regular items, you can still place an order but come in to collect when you're ready!

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.

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.

Your Shop Needs You!

Our Community Shop is staffed largely by a willing team of volunteers, but we're always on the lookout for more support. You can choose the days and times to suit, so if you have a few hours to spare please click here for more details.

Let us do your Dry Cleaning for you!

We offer an extensive Dry Cleaning service, including suits and shirts, dresses and gowns, duvets and sheets, curtains and service washes. Just bring your items to the shop and we’ll price them up and confirm a collection date.

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.

Wonderful community shop and post office. Really well run.
