About Ann & Nigel

Ann & Nigel Chappell are a Husband & wife team and run the shop together. They have lived in the village for 18 years so have a good knowledge of the surrounding area and good understanding of the Village and its occupants. Nigel has a background as a builder and Ann has a background as a Book Keeper so these skills lead them into this project acquiring the shop in September 2011. Ann and Nigel Chappell wanted to give the shop a new lease of life, so spent 9 months restoring the shop to its former glory. What you see today is the result of a lot of sacrifice and extremely hard work. They had 9 months to think about the type of establishment the Village needed and decided it would benefit from a place where you could purchase everyday things like Milk, bread, newspapers etc. but also a place where you could find something a little bit special and a place to meet friends and bring the community together again and that is exactly what they have created. Thundridge Village Stores was re-opened on the 17th June 2012 after being closed for 2 years and now Ann & Nigel are serving the community as shop keepers and enjoying every minute.


Our Aim

Our aim is to provide Thundridge Village and the surrounding areas with their everyday needs sourcing products locally where possible including meat, vegetables and bread. We stock a wide range of everyday essentials but also stock specialist goods that are a little bit different. Combining this with our charming Tea Room makes this a wonderful place to visit.
