Special arrangements during the coronavirus pandemic

Shop Opening Hours

We are continuously reviewing our opening hours of the shop and Post Office; to help to reduce the demands on our team of volunteers while we are enduring the Coronavirus pandemic.  Our website is constantly updated with the latest information. 

Social Distancing

We are limiting the number of customers allowed into the shop at any one time, and have marked the floor to help us all to keep a safe distance. We can also provide service at the door for anyone wishing to stay outside. Please look out for notices about these measures. 

Self Isolation

If you are unable to leave your home you can phone the shop to place an order for provisions and The Spaxton Coronavirus Support Group will deliver them to you. Payment will be by credit/debit card over the phone, cheque or cash-on-delivery by special arrangement.

Medicine Deliveries

During the coronavirus pandemic, self-isolating patients living in Spaxton, Aisholt and Merridge can arrange for medicines supplied by the dispensaries at Cannington Health Centre and The Quantock Medical Centre to be delivered to their homes. Patients should contact their own surgery to make or change arrangements and in both cases collection from Spaxton Community Stores continues to be an alternative option.
