The Post Office first came to Childrey in the 1860’s. It has occupied at least 3 premises, firstly where the shop now is, then where Penn House was, then at ‘The Old Post Office’ by the Village Green and finally it came back to the shop’s current location in 1972 before being closed in 2008.

village-shopWe are lucky to still have the traditional village shop that provides a wide range of services for locals and visitors alike.

Services include: newspapers (orders can be placed for papers and magazines), dry cleaning, wines and spirits, groceries, fruit and vegetables, dairy products, ice cream and confectionery, stamps, Shepherd’s fresh bread and cakes, pies, sandwiches and hot and cold drinks.
