Speldhurst's Shop and Post Office has re-opened for business. The Community Shop Project Committee have shared the following update:

Monday 16th September - Speldhurst's Community Shop and Post Office opens for business
Shop : 7am - 6pm
Post Office : 10am - 5.30pm

From Tuesday 17th September, normal weekday Post Office hours of 9am to 5.30pm will resume

Saturday 28th September - 12 midday - official opening by Greg Clark, MP.

A huge effort by dozens of volunteers and Jo-Anne our shop manager brings us to the eve of opening YOUR Community Shop and Post Office. The committee hopes you like YOUR "new" Shop and Post Office. Jo-Anne and her team of Debbie and Clara, plus the volunteers working in the shop, can't wait to see you in there.

One big request to all or our customers and volunteers - PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH US! In the coming weeks and months we will be finding our way as to how to operate YOUR Shop and Post Office to best serve you, our customers. All of our paid staff and volunteers will be undergoing training in the coming weeks - both in the shop and the Post Office. The suppliers used and product range in the shop will evolve with time. We will be learning how best to ensure a rewarding and enjoyable experience for our volunteers.

Our newspaper deliveries will resume on Monday to those customers who previously took advantage of this service. If you weren't previously having newspapers delivered but would like to start please let the shop know. You will see that the decking in front of the shop is already under construction, opening date for that to be confirmed.


Do you want to join in as a volunteer? You would be very welcome - email us at - or just pop in to the shop and say hello.
