Farewell to Anne

After nearly four years of warmth, professionalism and dedication as our Assistant Manager, Anne is hanging up her shop apron. Fortunately for us, she has very kindly agreed to carry on as a volunteer so you will still be able to catch her behind the counter sometimes!

The shop has benefitted greatly from Anne’s diligence and expertise and I know many of you will have enjoyed working with her or just having a friendly chat. Her ever helpful manner often saw her going above and beyond the “call of duty” – from dashing home to find some bubble wrap for someone with a parcel to send, to dropping off a customer’s shopping when they could not get out – the list is long and truly indicative of Anne’s wholehearted approach to what it means to be part of a community shop.

We know you would like to join us in thanking Anne, not only for her friendliness and ready wit but also for her outstanding commitment to our Community Shop.

As a thank you to all our customers, we would like you to take a raffle ticket every time you shop betwen now and Christmas Eve.

Please make sure that your name and contact number are written clearly on the counterfoil.

Thank you for your valued custom this year.

Crafty Christmas!

Christmas Craft
If you have some home-made items, which you think would be good for stocking fillers, then how about selling them at the shop?
All money taken is yours…we don’t charge you anything for the shelf space.
All we ask is that you provide us with a large strong envelope which has your name, contact details and a list of the items you are selling written on it.
All items must be clearly priced.
We are starting the craft sale from Friday 17th November for two weeks.
Please speak to Ann or Helen if you would like to take part.

Volunteer Bonfire Celebration BBQ

Another amazing evening for all our Volunteers! Alan and Kate kindly allowed us to take over their barn for the night with fairylights, delicious food, bowling and wonderful music by Josh Wheaton. What a great way to catch up with friends and meet new Volunteers!

Join us to celebrate our 5th birthday!

Help us celebrate our 5th Anniversary of the shop being open!

18 July 2017.

There will be a BBQ, cakes, tea, coffee and Summer Pimms as well as ice-pops for the children.

All welcome!

The Ilsington Village Shop Calendar 2018

The Ilsington Village Shop Calendar 2018 would love to use your photos!
If you have a good resolution picture, preferably landscape orientation, which fits with the theme of ‘Ilsington Parish’, then please email it to us at ilsingtonvillageshop@btconnect.com and we will enter it into the competition to choose the 12 best!

These will then be published and sold as a calendar for next year.

We have deliberately chosen a very wide theme so please don’t feel restricted…anything to do with the Parish of Ilsington could be acceptable to us.

Closing date for entries is 1st August 2017.

Come and join us for a Christmas Market with a Difference!

The Ilsington Community Market has a wide variety of stalls selling traditional and modern handmade crafts, locally made jams and honey, jewellery, pretty gifts, delicious cakes, children’s clothes, toys, cards, framed prints, local meats and craft ale.

Come along and choose your Christmas presents and treats in a lovely festive atmosphere. There will also be a Christmas raffle, Christmas music and Pony rides as well as mince pies and mulled wine.

Any profits from the running of this market will be donated to a local Christmas Foodbank.

Ilsington Community Market is looking for a new person to organise future markets. There is a great support team available to anyone who would like to take on this role. If you are interested, or would like further information, please contact Su.

If you would like a stall at the market, please contact Su on 01364 661318.

Hope to see you all there!

Brand New Till System

Our new till system is now up and running. The changeover has been smooth and the Volunteer training has gone very well. There is bound to be a few teething troubles, but we hope you will enjoy using this new piece of technology. It will make managing our stock and our accounts much easier. Plus, there are pretty pictures!
