What makes us different

Community-owned and run

Because we're owned and run by the community, we make every effort to exceed our customers' expectations, support local producers and deliver excellent, friendly service.
The Shop is run by full-time Manager, Gill, Assistant, Tash (who works part-time), and a wonderful band of treasured volunteers.
We always welcome volunteers both in the Shop and behind the scenes. If you can help, please do get in touch. Enquire at the Shop, by phone, email or social media. It's a great way to meet people, learn new skills, and make friends.
