Why not come and join in the festive spirit at The Burrow? Come and help us, come and volunteer!
There's loads you can do to help: if working in the shop or the café doesn't float your boat we can always do with some help with D.I.Y, marketing and advertising, or stock rotation!
Come and see if you have something to offer to your local community shop!
The Burrow at Exbourne has been shortlisted in this year’s Plunkett Foundation Rural Community Ownership Awards!
The category is for Better Environment and there are 2 other enterprises shortlisted. In notifying the team at The Burrow the Plunkett Foundation’s organiser said that “Yet again, the awards were hotly contested with applications coming from across the UK, and from a variety of enterprise types. The applications were extremely impressive, making shortlisting very difficult. Your team should therefore feel very proud of this achievement.”
The winning shop will be announced on the 1st July at the Oxford Belfry Hotel in Oxfordshire and will receive £500.
Award-winning Tom's Pies are regularly in store now.
Try them in the cafe or take one home for a quick and delicious supper. http://www.toms-pies.co.uk
In December 2001 the village shop and post office in Exbourne with Jacobstowe in rural West Devon closed. This meant that villagers would have to make a journey of at least 5 miles each way to reach the nearest town for shops and services. Now after 10 years of hard work and fund raising the village has its own shop and cafe and its underground.
