*** COVID-19 Crisis ***
Please note that during the crisis our opening times have changed.
In conjunction with Norton, Thurlton and Thorpe Good Neighbour Scheme, the shop is organising deliveries to those who are vulnerable and self-isolating. For details see our latest news post.
Thurlton Community Shop is at the heart of the local community providing a means of obtaining provisions and an important opportunity for social contact. It is the only convenience store within 3-miles. Consequently many residents, particularly the elderly and those without their own transport, rely on the shop for daily essentials. As a community shop it plays an important role in reducing social isolation by providing a place for people to meet and chat, and provides a way for the community to keep an eye out for vulnerable residents. The shop also provides bespoke services to meet the specific needs of the community. Furthermore, by minimising the number of journeys or distances that locals drive for provisions, the shop helps to them reduce their environmental footprints.
