Welcome to Jura

Jura Community Shop
Opening times for race weekend 2016 (TBC):
Jura's community run shop is well stocked and orders can be taken for collection on arrival.
The shop is now owned by the community and is really essential to keep a strong community here, so we need all the business we can get!
The shop will be open as below for race weekend, and welcomes pre-orders for anything you
think they might be short of, or not normally stock.
Monday - Thursday 9am - 1pm & 2pm - 5pm, Friday and Saturday 2pm - 5pm. Sunday 9am - 12 noon. May stay open later on Saturday if there is demand.
There is a wide range of fresh and frozen food available, bread, milk, store cupboard and delicatessen items plus alcohol and soft drinks.
For extra convenience an order can easily be placed via the website or email email@example.com, for collection on arrival.
The snacks van is normally parked near or on the Hotel field from the Friday to the
Monday, serving breakfast, lunch and evening meals. Pre-booked packed lunches may be available.
N.B. the catering van might not be available this year, 2016.
Not licensed, but patrons can bring their own drinks. Please book ahead.
