Budgens nominated for special recognition

Budgens Store in Green Lane Clanfield have been praised for their unstinting support for the community in a national newspaper. Local customer, Janice Broadbridge, wrote to The i newspaper nominating Jacqui and Andy Shaw and their team for special recognition during “lockdown and beyond.”

I would like to nominate my local cornershop, Budgens, Green Lane, Clanfield, Hampshire, for recognition of all the hard work they have done to support the local community in lockdown and beyond.

The shop is managed by Jacqui and Andy. From the earliest stage, they installed a hand sanitiser station at the door and had a volunteer from the local Coronavirus Support Group to manage the number of people in the shop at any time. They ensured their staff had the necessary PPE and protection at the tills, put down signage showing the two metre spacing between customers, and sold reusable face masks by the counter for those unable to find them elsewhere.

Both Jacqui and Andy went the extra mile trying to source products that were difficult to get, for example toilet rolls, bread and flour. They made up orders for delivery to people in the village unable to do their own shopping and also put items aside for collection by customers who were restricting their visits to the shop (like me).

They, and all their staff, were always helpful and supportive and made a very worrying time as positive as it could be.

Clanfield Online salutes Budgens and all our local businesses that have worked so hard during lockdown and are committed to continue their community support in the months to come.

You can propose your local store for recognition in i by emailing with the subject line “My local corner shop” – and a few sentencers about what makes them special.
