We are always looking for more villagers to help run our community shop. We need people to either work behind the counter or in the shop helping with the operations; stock control, cleaning, opening and closing. Even if you can just spare a couple of hours it really makes a difference.

Please come into Wren’s Shop during Post Office hours and talk to Janeen about signing up for 1 or more hours a week.
