Our Village Shop Criteria

"To maintain a small informal well stocked village shop, both as a source of supply and a social focal point. Complementary to this prime objective is the determination to keep open the Post Office".

The East Hagbourne Community Shop was formed in 2001 to help protect our local post office and to provide an additional village amenity. The shop and the post office are located in the front part of Passey’s Garage on New Road where there is adequate parking for cars and bicycles. The hours are as follows:

Friday 9am -5:30pm 9am - 12:30pm Closed

The establishment and manning of the Shop has been an entirely volunteer effort with many village people contributing their time, energy and experience to making this venture a success. New volunteers are always welcome. Many of our wonderful team of volunteers only help in the Shop an hour or two a month. There’s no obligation to help each week or on a regular basis — we have volunteers who help only during school term and some who help only during the school holidays. Please contact Alice Smith (tel. 813393 or smith@hagbourne.plus.com) to find out more and/or to become part of the team.

Our Shop is a convenience store selling milk, ice cream, soft drinks, canned goods, frozen and chiller items and many staple foods such as locally-supplied free-range eggs, freshly-frozen fish, and local honey. It also provides a broad range of household and stationery products, including greeting cards, many toiletries and health care products. Our dry cleaning service is both quick and economical. Gift packs of oatie flip biscuits personalised for our Shop with great pictures of the village make great gifts; as do East Hagbourne tea towels. Our range of excellent local products is gradually increasing and includes:
