Post Office hours have been extended for Christmas!!



NEW VOLUNTEERS WOULD BE VERY WELCOME!! A number of our volunteers have been self-isolating and are unable to return to the shop, though several have now resumed their shifts. In order to carry on with the new opening hours and offer the best service to our community, we could really do with a few more volunteers. If you have a couple of hours to spare during the week... or especially at weekends.... you could make a real contribution to the life of the community. Have a look at the "Volunteers Wanted" page on this website


We will now be happy to deliver your shopping to your door if you prefer not to leave the house due to Covid restrictions or concerns. Deliveries are made on Wednesday. Simply phone the shop on 841482 after 1pm, and a volunteer will assemble your order. You then pay by card and your items will be brought to you by 3.30...... we ask you to place an order costing £10 or more and of course live locally!

So far we have helped out around 30 households in this way and we will be happy to carry on for as long as it takes to keep everyone safe, so please call us if you need us.

St Mabyn Community Shop was established by a group of villagers in 2018. Our aim is to cater for the needs of our community and visitors to the area, and having been open for over a year, we can report that we have a thriving business which has established itself as the social hub of the village where people can meet, get to know their neighbours, as well as buying a wide range of provisons. We aim to be a real community centre and have encouraged activities such as visits by children from St Mabyn School, a Cake Sale by the local Young Farmers, ticket sales for local theatre groups etc.

The shops offers a wide range of food and drink; fresh fruit and vegetables are delivered daily, as well as milk and dairy products, free range eggs, fresh bread and Pasties from Barnecutts Bakery in Wadebridge. We have a fridge full of items such as bacon, sausages, pork pies and other fish and meat products, and we can order special items in according to our customers' requirements. We stock a full range of daily newspapers and a variety of magazines.

Since October 2019 we also have a Post Office counter and can offer a wide range of Post Office Services.

The shop is a "Community Benefit Society". We have two very talented and enthusiastic Managers in Sarah Ward and Becca Goodfellow who split the hours between them, and a team of some 40 volunteers who give their time to ensure that the shop can work efficiently for the benefit of all; they are all local people who are more than happy to chat and share their local knowledge with visitors to the area. You can always be sure of a warm welcome in St Mabyn Community Shop!
