If you have a couple of hours to spare each week and if you are feeling the need for a little company and fun, why not consider helping out at your community shop? Volunteer sessions only last for two and a half hours and can be flexible enough to suit your personal needs.

You need not even commit to once a week. Some volunteers work a fortnightly shift. Volunteering offers the opportunity to meet fellow villagers from all walks of life and to experience something a bit different and out of the ordinary for most of us. Both the shop and the cafe are here for our community and that, of course, means you. Please think about it, and for further information please ring:

The Shop – 01635 202642
Lesley Ravenscroft – 01635 200807
Avril Mason –  01635 201307

Or you could also pop into the shop for a chat. There is always someone there to help.
