Our staff

Shop manager
Our professional shop manager, John Goodenough, leads a team of dedicated volunteers who give up 3-4 hours of their time to work a shift in the shop or to help out in other ways.

John lives near Oxford with his wife and three children. He has a wide experience of the retail sector, having previously worked for the Co-op for nine years.  John has been manager of Radley Village Shop since it opened in May 2007.

Volunteers
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, Judy Tams (email rota@radleyvillageshop.com).

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.”
