Aveton Gifford is a community owned shop, run by Dinah Ashton and ably supported by Jilly, Miriam and Sam.
Aveton Gifford Village Shop Association was formed as a result of the last surviving shop in the village closing in 2003. Fundraising for the new community shop began and villagers bought shares priced at £5 each. The new shop premises, a purpose built timber-framed building that opened for business on the 1st August 2009, is a result of the hard work of the founding committee, the shop staff, the villagers’ support for the scheme, and the current committee.
The Post Office offers all its usual services, plus cash-back, paying-in facilities, buying Euros and phone-card top-ups.
We sell locally produced products where we can and are continually adding more. As well as the basics – milk, bread, eggs, meat and vegetables – we have a good selection of other local food and treats as well (see the list below). The shop also supplies household goods, stationery, newspapers and much more. For eco-friendly shoppers, we have the Ecover range.
You can order your newspapers and magazines here.
We have a dry-cleaning, laundry and shoe repair service.
And if you have a regular prescription from Modbury health centre, then please use our collection service.
We accept all major debit and credit cards.
To establish your needs, wants and desires it is important to know what you want… and equally what you don’t want! If there is something that you think we should provide, or you would like something put by please ring us on the number in the contact box to the right.
The police have been in touch: apparently they found finger prints inside a plastic bag that was at the scene, but the prints were not on their records. They will however be kept on record in case they appear elsewhere.
The left and right hand glove have been reunited.
A key ring has been handed in. There are no keys on it, but there is a picture of a horse and a metal pink ballet dress.
