We are really sorry to advise you that we will have to reduce Marchington Shop hours for customers, temporarily, in the light of the health crisis and government advisories. We have thought long and hard about balancing the needs of everybody at this difficult time for us all.

We are seeking to reduce risk for our staff, customers and volunteers by reducing our Opening Hours to 8.30 to 10.30, Monday to Friday and 9am to 11am Saturday and Sunday.

In addition, from 10.30 to 11.30 each weekday the phone line on 01283 821248 will remain open for ordering, even though the shop itself will be closed.

We will be maintaining newspaper deliveries and starting to make deliveries of essential grocery items including bread, eggs, and the groceries that we have usually stocked, where we can, with special focus on people who are self-isolating.

We have a new procedure so that only one customer will be in the shop at any one time, please. We also require customers to remain outside (and keep at the required distance of 6 feet apart) if there is already another customer in the shop. We hope that customers will be speedy in the shop, especially when others are waiting outside. Before being served customers will be required to use the supplied sanitiser on their hands.

If you would like to order from us for delivery in the village, Forestside or the Woodlands, please ring the shop on 01283 821248, preferably after 10.30, for order details. Or email the shop with what you want on this email address: We will take card payments over the phone.

The email address will also be ‘manned’ for orders, deliveries and queries especially those that relate to the Marchington Buddies support scheme, organised by the Parish Council.

And we have a good range of wine in stock, not a 100% full range but plenty to chose from, see attached. And there is a 5% discount, for 6+ bottles except those on offer.

Please bear with us if we have to change some of these arrangements as we go, but this is what we can and should offer for now.

We thank you for your continued support in these unprecedented times and look forward to seeing you all in person soon.

On Behalf of the Managers, Volunteers and Shop Board
