The Rainbow Shop

The Rainbow Shop is the Village’s own Charity Shop

Sited opposite the Co-op in Main Street and alongside St. Andrew's Church, it was the brainchild of the then Vicar Brian Davis and his wife Sylvia (sadly Sylvia died in 2006) Over the last twenty six years it has sent over £150,000 to Christian Aid to help fund projects overseas.

The shop sells good quality largely second-hand clothes and is staffed by friendly volunteers from across the churches and village so you can expect a warm welcome. It is open from 10.00 a.m. to 12.00 noon on weekday mornings and 2.00pm to 4.00p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. and Saturdays from 10.00 a.m. to 3.00p.m.

Alongside the Good as New clothes the shop sells a good range of Fairly traded products, wholefoods, cards, toys, books, DVD's, videos, bric-a-brac and other items. The Rainbow Shop is always very happy to receive donations of any of these items to sell, and if you require them to be collected please contact Gail Mackley on 0116 2778982.

You can also have refreshments and sit and chat in comfort as you drink your coffee, tea or soft drink.
