Goodbye to Rob and Anne

Rob and Anne Parkinson have been a huge part of the community for many years. Not only have they volunteered regularly at the Village Shop but Anne was also our Assistant Manager! We are both excited and sad to say goodbye to them as they make their way to Scotland to begin another exciting chapter in their lives.

They will be greatly missed and we are sure you will join us in wishing them good health and good luck.

Shiny New Manager!

The Village Shop Committee is delighted to announce that we have a new Shop Manager! We were so lucky to have such a large and strong pool of applicants to choose from, all of whom were lovely people who thought highly of the shop and wanted to join our team.

However, one person stood out above the rest because of her passion and her spark and we would like to introduce Katherine Bainbridge as the new Shop Manager beginning on the 3 Feb 2020. Helen is a hard act to follow but we hope the community will welcome Katherine with open arms and give her lots of support.

Goodbye Helen

We are very sad to announce that Helen Tate will be leaving us at the end of January.

Helen has been a wonderful manager for the last three and a half years and is a firm fixture in the community. She will be greatly missed and I hope you will all join us in wishing her all the best for the future.

Of course we could not let her slip away quietly and so we filled the shop with friends and volunteers on Helen’s last shift to give her gifts and cards (and lots of hugs!)

The End Of An Era!

After being at the helm of the Village Shop Committee for ten years, Alan Hobbs has finally escaped…..sorry….stepped down! He has been the Chairman and a key member of the committee since before the shop was even built and over the years has turned his hand to accounting, building, cleaning, electrical wiring, selling, entertaining, carpentry, legal matters, cooking, computing and so much more. What will we do without him, I hear you cry?! Well, luckily for us, both he and his lovely wife Kate will continue to Volunteer at the shop.

The Committee got together to say thank you to Alan and also to Paul Hughes, who is also stepping down as the Shop Treasurer after many years of loyal service. Sue Norris presented Alan with some vouchers.

The Committee will continue with a new Chairman, Su Wheaton and a new Treasurer, Chris Handley.
