Adderbury Stores News

Things continue to brighten up at our excellent village shop.

Bhavin has added a range of meats from the renowned Brackley Butchers to complement the regular Meat Joint products, and there’s really good news that the excellent Cornfield Bakery is now delivering 3 times a week a good choice of their breads and morning goods.

Bhavin continues to respond well to his interpersonal skills training – apart from the odd wobble, which would probably happen to us all if we were in the shop 85 hours a week!

He’s doing a great job – use him or lose him.
