A community shop is exactly that - owned and run by the community so it will only be viable and a success with your support.

It is essential that we mobilise different people with different skill sets including, but not limited to, the specific roles outlined here that we are looking for help with now.

Looking ahead to when we are trading, as well as needing volunteers to work in the shop, we will need people to help with deliveries or to tend the garden. It is a great way of meeting people and there will always be a paid staff member on duty so if you choose to volunteer you will never be on your own.

As part of our volunteer group we will be providing work skills for the younger members of our community, potentially giving them experience as Duke of Edinburgh Volunteers, whilst working towards their award. 


You may not feel you are best placed to help, rest assured, there is a place and a role here for everyone; from offering your experience in a specific working group, to helping share our news and making our events a success. 


Please get in touch as we are very happy to welcome new blood to the team. Contact us here.
