We currently have a team of around 50 volunteers who serve in the shop and help in other ways, but new people are always welcome. Full training is given. More about what’s involved
Become a volunteer. Could you spare a few hours of your time either regularly or occasionally to help our village shop? Either speak to the shop manager or contact our Rota Manager, Jenny Stead (email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Regular newsletters help keep everyone up-to-date with what’s happening in the shop.
Many of the volunteers enjoy meeting other villagers. One volunteer commented:
“It’s great to have a shop in the village and I find it uplifting being involved. I had never worked in a shop before. My initial feelings of apprehension soon passed, as everyone was so supportive. I enjoy my weekly shift; meeting people, learning new skills and working in such a friendly atmosphere.”
