A village shop serving and supporting the rural community

Your Community Shop Needs You!

by | Oct 1, 2020 | Coddenham Community Shop

Kids gone back to school? Time on your hands? Want to do something a bit different?

Would you like to meet more people, learn new skills, help your community and maybe boost your CV?

Coddenham Community Shop needs more volunteers! If you could spare a few hours once or twice a week, we’d love to hear from you.

Our multi-award-winning village shop is slowly getting back to ‘normal’, after a difficult few months for us all. Sadly, some of our stalwart volunteers are not yet ready to return.

We have all sorts of exciting plans, including eventually re-opening our lovely Coffee Stop and extending our opening hours but, to do so, we need more people! Serving in the shop is obviously a key role, but we have other opportunities too. We are aiming to move to a more flexible shift pattern with, possibly, a three-hour shift pattern, rather than our current 4-hour ones.

We’d particularly like to reflect our community by having more teenagers and younger adults in the team. It’s fun and a great way to meet people, both local and from further afield – we get a lot of visitors calling in. You will have the opportunity to learn new, transferable skills, such as operating a modern web-based till system and gaining accredited Food Hygiene qualifications. All training is free.

If you think you might be interested, just call Rod on 07720 412688 or Bliss on 07388 189332 for a chat. There’s no obligation!
