The original S. Bird & Sons shop on Castle Green
John Sturgess ran Nunney Post Office for many years. He was also an enthusiastic member of the Bathampton Morris Men in retirement. His son Andy is the village postman.

Peggy Bird ran the village shop for decades with her husband. S. Bird & Sons was established in 1923 and still serves the local community as the SPAR village shop, now run by Mrs Bird’s son David.

Our condolences go out to both families.
