COVID-19 Notice

Update: 26/07/2021

Counter with Perspex screen

The Shop in Alfrick is still very much open, alive, and kicking, from 9 till 5 weekdays and 9 til 12 weekends, serving the needs of the local community. There’s a wide range of stock including flour, yeast, bread, eggs, local meat, groceries, beers and wine, pet food, and lots of lovely local fruit, vegetables and plants.

We are no longer limiting the number of people who can enter the shop at any one time but ask that customers respect others by wearing a face mask and using hand sanitiser. Payment is made through a hatch in the screen at the counter. However, any customers who would prefer not to enter can ask for their shopping to be done on their behalf, and payment can be made through the window. Payment by card is preferred and home deliveries can be arranged for those in need on 01886 832862. There are also masks available if anybody should need one. We’ve are continuing to use a one-way system with an exit through the back door.

The Post Office is operating from 11:00am till 4 pm on weekdays.

The café is now fully open again including the cafe garden for those who would prefer to eat outside. Small groups are advised to contact us ahead of time to book. 

Check our Facebook pageAlfrick and Lulsley Community Shop for updates or see the Notice outside the shop.

None of this would be possible without the fantastic efforts of many volunteers and staff, both in the shop and behind the scenes (working from home!), helping to keep our community strong. Thanks are due to all of them. Thank you, everyone, for your continued support and understanding. Please be patient and we’ll serve you as best we can as we adapt to these new circumstances.
