Otley Village Stores & Post Office (01473 890257)
The Post Office has been an integral part of the village for many years and has seen many changes. However, the most recent owners,Andrew & Penny, along with their friendly team have transformed this simple village shop into an award winning, thriving hub and centre point to the village.
The shop forms a central hub for information, news about events in the village, what's for sale and local businesses. There is a well stocked wine lodge offering sale or return service for parties and functions (cases of wine are much discounted) and the shop has local produce, newspapers, fresh milk, vegetables and bread daily. If they don't have what you want just ask and we can normally get it! There is a national lottery terminal and a dry cleaning and laundry service. Don't forget the seasonal garden centre for bedding plants, perennials and compost and for your winter needs, coal, smokeless fuel, salt, kindling, logs and calor gas can all be ordered here.

Community Action Suffolk Bulk Oil Buying Scheme - saving money in rural areas
Over 1000 members have made yearly savings, averaging £156 each, thanks to Community Action Suffolk's community oil buying scheme. The scheme collates orders from members across Suffolk, which are then added together into one large order, so that our oil buyer can negotiate the very best price for our members. Membership of the scheme costs £20 a year for domestic households, or £30 for community groups and community buildings, but for local co-ordinators membership is free. To join all you need to do is go to www.communitybuying.org.uk, call Community Action Suffolk on 01473 34500 or email email@example.com
