Volunteer Appeal

Please consider volunteering at your local community shop as we are in need of people to man the tills.   On a few occasions recently we have nearly had to close the shop due to lack of volunteers.   Being a shop volunteer is a great way of meeting people and making friends.   We need volunteer shop assistants, but if you don’t want to be in the public eye we would also like help with baking.   We don’t expect you to volunteer at the same time every week unless you want to.   If you can only help occasionally we would also be grateful for this.    Any help however small is gratefully received.

If you think you would like to volunteer, even for an hour or two, just to help out, just call Lyn, Lynda or Holly at the shop on 01672 539200. We promise tea, biscuits and friendship.


Local Deliveries

Please don’t forget that we can deliver to you if you are unable to come into the shop.   Just give us a ring on the number at the top of this article.
