Buy Local

The aim of our village store is to provide the residents of Ewelme and visitors to the village with a sustainable community-owned shop selling local produce (including tea and cakes) and to create a focal point for the village.

 

We stock a range of local products and have been supported in this initiative by a Local Food grant from the Big Lottery Fund.
