Volunteer in the store

Volunteers are an essential part of running our village shop and are vital to its success. Becoming a volunteer will not only benefit our community but also yourself – and it’s a great way to meet new people and gain additional skills and experience.

Everyone is welcome aged 18+ (we also welcome 16-18 year olds undertaking their Duke of Edinburgh awards or other similar schemes). By volunteering you gain employability skills and excellent work experience. It’s a lot of fun too.

There will usually be more than one volunteer working in the shop at each shift and full and ongoing training will be given.

Shop tasks not only include serving customers, but replenishing shelves, checking dates, labelling prices, unpacking deliveries, merchandising, cleaning, ordering and training.

Other help

There are other opportunities to help out such as entering and updating back office data, maintenance work which will always be appreciated, admin such as payroll and banking, IT support and marketing and design.

Positions on the Management Committee come up from time to time.
