The Oak Shop is now a true community shop, staffed by volunteers and can only remain open if enough helpers are available. New volunteers are always welcome and training is given.
The slightly altered opening hours are between 9am and 12 noon, Monday to Saturday. The Post Office hours remain the same as before, between 10am and 12 noon, Tuesdays and Fridays.
Carol Cottle is overseeing the general running of the shop and would be pleased to hear your views regarding items stocked.
As well as food, household goods, newspapers and Post Office, the shop is a collection point for prescriptions from Dulverton surgery, has a well used notice board advertising events in and around Winsford, a collection box for the West Somerset Food Cupboard, a focal point for any concerns regarding village residents who might need a visit/helping hand and a band of volunteers who are often called upon to give directions to weary travellers and lost delivery vans!
Many thanks are due to Mark and Sally Bradley, without whose generous support the shop would not exist. Please do join them by supporting and using the shop which is such an asset to Winsford village.
