Supporting Our Village Shop
Please shop with us. Our friendly staff are happy to help with all your shopping needs.
If you have some time on your hands (even if it is only an hour or two) volunteer to help in the Shop. If you don’t think “manning the till” is for you we have lots of behind the scenes jobs too.
Please contact Hilary Ward for more information.
If you feel like going a step further we are still looking for people to join the Management Committee. Not sure what is involved? How much time it will take?
Sponsor a Shift
Unable to volunteer but would like to support the shop? Then sponsor a shift.
A 2 hour shift costs £13 and we have 4 sponsored so far - Is this for you?
Become a Shareholder
For the small sum of £10, you can become a shareholder in our Village Shop.
Being a shareholder gives you the right to help decide the Shop's future and to have a say in how it is run. Each person can buy a single share in the shop. Those under 18 can give a £10 loan which will be converted into a share on their 18th birthday. Please ask any member of the Shop's staff for more details.
Spread the Word
Nothing is better for a business than a personal recommendation. Tell you friends and relatives about the shop and (if they are also local) encourage them to come along. We are sure that they will enjoy the experience and be made very welcome by our friendly team.
We sometimes have fundraising events. Details will be posted here and in the shop. You can come along and support us or offer to help at the event.
You can offer a donation to the shop funds. Sometimes vital equipment breaks down or simply wears out. We need to service all our equipment and sometimes replace it. Any help toward this end would be most gratefully received.
