This is Shop Wolverton

Wolverton is a small Victorian Railway Town in North East Milton Keynes. The town became part of Milton Keynes when the New Town was established in 1969, but retains its own unique character, sense of identity and distinct sense of community.

We are lucky to have a diverse range of independent businesses serving the local community, many of whom have been in the Town centre for decades.

Shop Wolverton showcases these fantastic businesses, but is no ordinary listing directory.

It tells the stories of the people behind each business, and gives a glimpse of the range of products and fantastic food they produce through a photo gallery.

WOLVERTON'S RESPONSE TO COVID-19 (MAY 7th 2020)

The Coronavirus Pandemic has had a huge impact on the Wolverton business community. 

Following Government advice, and the social distancing measures introduced through the lockdown, many of our local independent businesses have had to close.

 

Below is a summary of the businesses currently open, the hours they are operating, and the necessary health and safety measures they have had to introduce. 

There is also a summary of the businesses that are operating online and delivery services.

A number of well loved local businesses have launched funding appeals to help survive the lockdown period. Please give generously if you can.
