Slow lorries, helpful posties, spending money and a scrub up?
From April the price of sending a letter is going up - it will now cost £1.35 (it was £1.25) for first class post and 85p (it was 75p) for second class post. We also understand that the afternoon collection from the post box at the bottom of the village may well come to a halt. Our local postmen have kindly let us know that as they will soon start their working day later (owing to having to wait for any mail from Scotland to arrive as it will now come by road rather than rail) it has been decided that they will empty the postbox and collect the mail from the Post Office all within an 11:00 - 11:30 window. At the time of going to press we are still awaiting confirmation of this.

In unrelated, more cheery news, holidays abroad may now be being considered so don't  forget our Post Office is now able to exchange sterling for euros - and vice versa. We also stock the Multi Currency Cards which you can can load up with your money to use when travelling and they then work in the same way as a direct debit card. The advantages of these are that your money is more secure as it is PIN protected and also you don't incur the fees that now apply to each transaction when using your normal card abroad.
Call in to find out more! The PO counter is open every day (except Sunday) from 09:00-12:00.

With the onset of Spring the urge to have a sort-out and perhaps a clean-through can occur. Apart from, of course, stocking a wide range of both mainstream and more ecofriendly household products did you know that you can also get your dry cleaning done courtesy of your local shop? Bring it in by a Wednesday morning and it will be returned to you the following Wednesday - what could be easier? From duvets, quilts and blankets to jackets, dresses and skirts, winter coats, etc., no item is too large or small so save yourself a trip and support your local shop.

Diary Date;
An early heads up:
This year’s Annual Members’ Meeting of the Yarpole Community Shop Association is on Thursday June 6th @ 7pm @ St Leonard’s Church.
Further details will follow as we near the date.
The meeting is open to all but only shareholders will be entitled to vote. However share application forms will be available on the night for anyone wishing to join and are always available in the shop.

An Easy way to support our shop.
If you shop online then you might like to consider signing up with Easy Fundraising - this is an online scheme that many well known retailers and brands are signed up to.
It won’t cost you anything but the member businesses will make a small donation to your chosen good cause - Yarpole Community Shop - if you choose us. There are about 130 people already supporting us and we do benefit every year by around £200 so it is well worth doing and costs nothing. Thank you.
