RACKENFORD SHOP - CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) OUTBREAK
Your community shop at Rackenford has made important changes to its service in order to help keep customers and volunteers safe during the current Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak.
We have reduced the shop opening hours and introduced a local delivery service.
From today, Monday 30 March, the shop hours have changed, as follows.
Monday 9 to 11am & 4 to 6pm
Tuesday 9 to 11am (includes Post Office) & 4 to 6pm
Wednesday 9 to 11am
Thursday 9 to 11am (includes Post Office) & 4 to 6pm
Friday 9 to 11am & 4 to 6pm
Saturday 9 to 11am

Grocery orders and deliveries.
Shop volunteers will deliver grocery orders plus any prescriptions received at the shop to any Rackenford resident. We encourage everyone to place an order and receive a delivery,
rather than visit the shop.
Send orders via email to firstname.lastname@example.org Please list the items and quantities required together with your name, address and telephone number.
Only when sending an email is not possible, customers may place an order via telephone out of shop opening hours on 01884 881740. Leave a message with your name and telephone number; we will then call you back to take your order.
We aim to deliver groceries and any prescriptions the same or next day.
A receipt will accompany all grocery deliveries and an invoice will be sent to the customer fortnightly with a request that payment is received by cash (No change will be given), cheque or BACS strictly within 7 days.
Only one customer is permitted to be in the shop at any one time.
The social distancing 2 metre rule must be observed between customer
and shop volunteer at all times.
On entering the shop, everyone should wash their hands using the soap and towels provided.
Thank you for your continued support during this difficult time.

The village is very proud of its community shop which is run entirely by volunteers. The Rackenford Village Shop Company was formed in 2002 to buy, restore and equip the old Church Room as a village shop and Post Office, the existing business, run from a front room, being too small to survive. The £70,000 project was financed with grants and loans, and nearly every Rackenford household subscribed to become members of the company. The RVS made the building available at a below market rent. Five years later the private business was still struggling, and it was decided to run the Shop as a wholly volunteer staffed enterprise. The Rackenford Community Shop has flourished since October 2007, with an outreach sub postmaster visiting two mornings a week. About 30 volunteers deal with ordering, selling, cleaning, the paperwork, the IT and everything else. There is an annual meeting for all members and anyone else interested.
We are constantly looking for additional volunteers so if you would like to help in any way please speak to any of our staff or ring us on the above telephone number.
