A Window with an Old View

When you next visit the village, one thing you will not miss is Holland's of Milford's new window!

Another two windows show old photos of the village from year's gone by, which will no doubt cause a lot of interest for many passers by.

Paul & Maureen Holland opened their independent village supermarket in 2000, and it is quite clear from their new window design that they are in love with the village and serving the people in it!

Pop down, take a look - and do some local shopping at the same time!

Holland's of Milford are also part of the 'Making A Difference Locally' Charity. This is a national charity which was launched to help independently-run local stores to add value in their communities through donations to local charities or good causes - such as local football teams, hospices or one of a thousand charities that run throughout the UK. The scheme is truly local as money is raised over time through the sale of specific products in our shop. We then choose the beneficiary for the money and a donation is paid to the charity or cause by the Making A Difference Locally Charity. To date Holland's have made donations of £1500, and they have £650 in the pot for our next donations.

If you are not familiar with the shop, you will find Holland's of Milford right in the centre of Milford on Sea High Street, next to the village green. The High Street has free parking, and there are also a pay & display car park in Sea Road, opposite the store. 

A unique village shop offering so much deserves our support, and I for one will try and buy more locally rather than using the large supermarkets so much. Why not join me, although best to come in when I am not there, I am pretty difficult to pass in the aisles!
