By our community. For our community!

Our Village Shop and Post Office is owned by our community shareholders and run by volunteers from our villages for the benefit and convenience of our community, supporting local suppliers.

Post Office

As well as stamps, and other essential Post Office services like sending parcels, you can pay bills, top up gas/electric keys, get banking services, order and collect foreign currency and collect your Amazon parcels!

Community Benefit Society

We are a registered Community Benefit Society, (not for profit) reporting to the FCA. This means that the shop activity is overseen by a small management committee and any surpluses made are reinvested back into the shop so it can continue to serve the communities of Huby and Sutton on the Forest.


We keep the shop going thanks to all the fab volunteers who give a few hours each week to serve, collect stock or keep the shop well maintained. To find out how to volunteer read more about us, call into the shop or email

New Space New Look

We have a fresh new identity to go alongside our fresh new space – we hope this best reflects the Community nature of our both our shop and values
