Somersham and District Community Shop

In Touch Community News

Our Meet up Monday and Petrol Heads sessions continue to be well supported and we are also part of the Rural Coffee Caravan Warm Spaces initiative; whenever we are open, we can offer a warm welcome to anyone that needs it, whether because of challenges of keeping warm at home, for some company, or just for a change of scenery. 

We would like to thank the East of England Co-op Lunch Club/Warm Hub Fund, administered by Suffolk Community Foundation, for agreeing to funding to help us make better use of our space and accommodate more people – keep your eyes open for some new furniture, coming soon!

In January, we were pleased to welcome Oak House Farm as a new supplier of meat products to the shop. They are based up the road in Burstall, so are another fantastically local supplier we are proud to support. We try to vary the range we have each week, but if there is something specific you would like, why not place an order? That way, you know you will get what you would like!

We receive deliveries almost every day and are happy to take orders for most of our products; speak to someone in the shop if this would be helpful for you.

Monday: Bread, milk, fruit and vegetables
Tuesday: Eggs, pies, and general groceries
Wednesday: Bread, cheese, and Pinney’s fish products
Thursday: Milk, fruit, vegetables, fresh cakes and meat
