Award time?
We have been nominated (again) for the Countryside Alliance Midlands ‘Rural Oscars’ Awards and have now been listed as a finalist! The awards are decided by a public vote (so we can vote for ourselves) and voting is now open until Midnight on Sunday 5th March. 

Voting is online and  you can use the link, to vote fur us. However if you can’t, or prefer not to, vote online (or can’t be bothered to type the link out) then you can vote in person via a petition in the shop. It’s a great chance for us to pat ourselves on the back and celebrate our shop.

May 8th Bank Holiday

As you may know the additional Bank Holiday to mark The Coronation has also been declared as a day to celebrate the positive impact that volunteering has in communities throughout the nation.

To play our part we will be holding an open ‘day’ in the shop to celebrate and promote the opportunities that the shop offers.

More details to follow.

Board recruitment

Even though we have been very encouraged by interest shown since our last call there may still be roles or functions for which the Board and shop would welcome assistance - not necessarily requiring joining the Board - so if you have skills or experience that you think would be helpful please email:  This email address is being protected from spambots.
