Here’s our latest price list, available to download.
We’re waiting for news about the success of the Parish Council’s various funding applications and approach to the Methodist Church organisation regarding the purchase of the Chapel and Schoolroom building. Once this (not insignificant!) hurdle has been cleared we will be able to start telling you about all of the plans we have been working on to develop the Community Shop project in the building, how the volunteering will work and – in response to customer demand – the return of the Hub Café that was proving so popular pre-pandemic. Watch this space!
(22 June 2021)
We have had a move-around of the furniture in the Schoolroom to open up the space and let customers browse all of the hundreds of product lines the Hub regularly carries.
We have also made it easier to download and print out each update of our Price List (see Download button below) which could be particularly helpful for passing on to the members of the community who are not online as often, or at all.
On a different note, the Village Shop Working Group has received our section of the responses to the Community Led Plan Questionnaire and will be looking – with great interest – at what you all had to say!

The Broughton Hub is now open!
In the Chapel Schoolroom on Chapel Lane
OPENING TIMES (from 02/01/2021)
Tuesday: 2pm – 4pm
Friday: 2pm – 4pm
Saturday: 10am – 4pm
The current version of the Broughton Hub is a COVID-secure convenience store, staffed by volunteers from the community, providing household essentials, regular orders of bread, milk, eggs and veggies, and a wide range of other store cupboard goods. We also maintain an eco-product station, including refills on a variety of items. This community resource should allow villagers to acquire a lot of what they need on a daily basis without having to leave the bounds of the village, while also supporting a number of local suppliers.
Our current stock list is available at Broughton Hub Online
We also have a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/broughtonhub/ which is updated frequently with news about new product lines, restocking of popular items and so on.
Once the COVID-19 pandemic eases we hope to re-introduce the popular Hub Café on Saturday mornings.
The Village Shop Working Group works in conjunction with the Health & Well-being Group to provide volunteer shopping and delivery services to anybody in the Church Broughton community who is isolated or shielding (particularly during the pandemic).
