SEE NEW OPENING TIMES
POST OFFICE SERVICE HAS NOW TRANSFERRED TO THE SHOP
We have extended our opening hours on Thursday and Friday by re-opening between 5 to 7 pm,
The legal entity of a Community Interest Company set up by the steering group to transform the old Aston Stores into the Aston Community Shop nears completion.
A village ‘Knees Up’, held on Saturday 22 August 2020 was used to invite a viewing of progress prior to the re-opening of the store as soon as possible after volunteers have been trained..
It will be YOUR Community Shop
To make this possible over 50 households have paid in their share pledges and raised just over £12,000. These funds have been used to completely renovate and transform the premises but left no funds to purchase stock.
Loans have therefore been taken out by the CIC for this purpose and we would like to repay them as soon as possible. Your continued financial support is still very much sought together with your time to volunteer.
Reduced opening hours will be in place until we are able to recruit more volunteer help and extend our hours.
Mon – Thu 08:30 – 14:00 and then later between 17:00 – 19:00
Friday 08:30 – 19:00
Saturday 08:30 – 14:00
Sunday 09:00 – 12:00
