The difficult times of the Coronavirus outbreak have presented challenging operating conditions for our staff, volunteers and customers. We are therefore immensely grateful for the following messages of support we have received in the last few days, in response to our latest shareholder update …

Thank you for sending me your wonderful news. It is great that the shop has become so useful to the people in your neighbourhood and further afield with your delivery service. Congratulations to your shop manager and staff.

Congratulations and a huge thank you to all involved.

You guys are superhuman and total saviours of our village and the surrounding area! We will all be forever grateful for everything you’ve done during this time. Thank you ? so so much, from the xxxxx family

CVS has been a joy throughout this Covid-19 crisis, the selection and quality on offer has been truly remarkable, not to mention the friendly faces, and it brings to mind one of Noel Coward’s great quotes – ‘Despite all I intend to travel through life first class’ !

Congratulations everyone, this is wonderful news and simply brilliant for our community. We have been reliant on the efforts of your whole team, particularly as our two boys seem to inhale food at the moment and without the CVS we frankly would have been scratching around for items all over….
It has also meant, more importantly we can reduce significantly the distance we have to travel and we can, in a small way, help to keep our community safer.
Without the tireless work of Lucy, Emma, Gary and all the team we would have been in a much less cheery situation during grave times. The xxxxx family thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you to everyone at CVS – we are so grateful that you have cheerfully kept our fantastic, vital shop and post office open during the coronavirus crisis and that you continue to help the community despite the social distancing fears.

I just wanted to say a big thank-you for all your hard work and efforts in making the village store a very special place in such difficult times. You are a lifeline for so many people. Thank you.
