In 2012 Neatishead lost its village shop, which not only served the inhabitants of Neatishead and the adjoining parishes of Barton Turf and Irstead but was also a useful calling point for holiday makers, especially those arriving at the local Staithe by boat.
Just over a year later, with determination, donations, grants and the sheer hard graft of volunteers the shop was reopened on March 9th by the Right Honourable Norman Lamb MP.
Here you will find not only the store cupboard staples, but a strong emphasis on locally made produce. The milk and butter is from a local dairy, there is a wonderful selection of cheeses and speciality breads and pies all made within a short distance of the shop. Fresh vegetables, yummy olives, snacks and 'bean to cup' coffee as well as daily papers, sweeties and pet food.
