Bradfield Southend Village Stores is a not-for-profit community shop and post office situated next to Bradfield Village Hall. It is housed in a new purpose designed building with ample parking in the village hall car park.
We sell a comprehensive range of convenience goods including fresh, chilled and frozen produce, a wide range of wines, beers and spirits, newspapers and magazines, stationery including some lovely greetings cards etc. We stock Fair Trade goods and try and provide as much local produce as we can. Fresh rolls and croissants are now on offer daily, baked in the shop early in the morning.
We also offer a number of services such as dry cleaning, prescription collection, photocopying and mobile phone and electricity/gas Top Ups. We also act as an information point for local activities.
Used batteries may be left here for recycling.
