The end of 2019 saw another change to the tenancy at the shop when Carrot and Wine’s Directors asked to assign the lease due to changing circumstances within their partnership.
Our village shop has been re-branded as Wellington Village Stores and is now in the capable hands of Julia Ashton, who lives with her family in Wellington and has long standing family connections with the village.
Julia has a very hands-on approach to running the business and is working hard to ensure that the shop delivers exactly what Wellington’s residents want. She is now officially appointed as Post Mistress so we are guaranteed a Post Office service too which is invaluable.
It remains in everyone’s interests to support the shop as much as possible to ensure its continuity.
The Parish Council will continue to maintain the fabric of the building as well as the external grounds and aims to deal with on-going maintenance as quickly as possible. A good working relationship exists with the new tenant to ensure that the building and its surroundings continue to be safe and fit for purpose.
