Somersham & District Community Shop

A community shop for the local community, and run by the local community.

Our wonderful volunteers continue to work to keep the shop open and provide a service to our customers during this difficult time, lots of thanks to them.

As well as all our usual provisions we are now stocking seasonal goods and in the run-up to Christmas we will be opening for longer hours, 10am to 4pm, each Friday. Gift hampers can be made up on request and orders can be taken for any extras required for any festivities you are planning.

Your support enables us to support other worthwhile causes. Thanks to our customers and volunteers we have been able to raise more than £500 for the local NHS and Macmillan Nurses. What a fantastic achievement. We have also been able to support the village church and school in their fundraising efforts.

It’s likely to be a much different Christmas and New Year this time but we send good wishes and greetings for a Happy Christmas and a very much happier and healthier New Year to all. We look forward to seeing everybody in the shop soon.
