The Oldbury Community Shop Group has the objective to :-
‘To set up a sustainable, attractive Community Shop for the benefit of local people. Providing a focal point with a strong community atmosphere, the shop will offer basic commodities and useful services alongside quality local produce’.
The Oldbury Village Community Shop was officially opened on the 8th February 2014. The Community Shop run by local volunteers offers a friendly atmosphere where people can not only Shop but also meet up with friends for a coffee/ tea and nice piece of cake in the cafe area.
The Shop offers freshly baked Hobbs bread everyday, milk, locally produced cakes and biscuits. National and Local newspapers and magazines on sale daily. Fresh fish, local meat and flowers. The shop stocks not only the basic products but a very large range of local produce with over 25 local suppliers.
The Shop’s opening hours are Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm, Saturday 8am to 2pm ( likely to be extended shortly) and Sunday 9am to 12 noon.
As mentioned above the Shop is run by Volunteers and we are always looking for new volunteers to help make the Shop a success. If you are interested in working a few hours or more please contact Marie Stephens – Tel No 01454 411134.
