37 volunteers, staff and committee members came together on Tuesday 21st February for a great evening, celebrating our lovely shop and café. Thanks to Avril for organising and to Stefon for the delicious food: lamb tagine (or a vegetarian option of filo pastry with feta cheese), couscous or new potatoes, salad – and a chocolate brownie. Much elderflower juice and red wine and white wine was consumed! We are planning another social event sometime in the summer – do please let us know if you have any suggestions. A barbeque outside perhaps? It would be lovely to see even more volunteers at that event.
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:

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