BARFORD VILLAGE SHOP
(Updated August 2015)

LATEST NEWS

Your Community Shop needs you!

Shop with us, volunteer for us and if you haven’t already bought a share, why not become a shareholder.

 Our products are local, great value and high quality. It’s not true what they say about village shops being expensive.

 We are within walking distance; no need for the car, unless it is to take all your bags of groceries home!

 The range of products changes regularly – keep popping into the shop to see what is new or join us on facebook to get your updates when they happen.

Bank Holiday Monday, August 31st – Summer Fun Day on the village green in aid of King George`s Playing Field. The shop will be open as normal depending on volunteers giving up their valuable time.

Don`t forget, `Pete the fish` van here every Wednesday 2.30pm to 3.30pm.

Do you have what it takes to be a volunteer at the shop? We are always looking for new volunteers to come and join our happy team. You can either train for a regular shift or work shifts that are suitable for your busy lifestyles. Anyone interested, please do not hesitate to pop into the shop for a chat. Saturdays and Sundays are always hard to fill, so if you can spare some time at the weekend - that would be great!

We have daily treats with the West`s Bakery, jam doughnuts, lardy cakes, pineapple tarts, custard tarts, iced buns, croissants, pain au chocolate and Eccles cakes.

Please support your local village shop, we have all you need, good quality products at great prices, and you can leave your car at home!!

Barford Village Shop is manned by volunteers. Many of the volunteers have been with us since the shop opened in November 2008. The shop donates its profit to the Barford Community Charity, which helps local causes.

New volunteers always welcome, pop into the shop for more information. It is a great way to meet new people and be part of the community.

Are you a shareholder in the Shop?
If not, now is your chance to join in a truly successful community enterprise.

The Board of Directors are very much aware that, in order to ensure the long term viability of the Shop, it will be necessary to have a strong active shareholder register.

In order to maintain the membership, which has dwindled over the past six years, we are offereing the opportunity to get involved and become a Shareholder.

Shares are avaiable ay £20 ech (maximum of one per person) by completing the simple applicaiton form available from the Shop and retruning, along witha cheque made out to Barford Village Community Interest Company.

Membership will give you the right to attend both General and Annual Meetings with full voting rights and an opprotunity to put yourself forward as a Director of the Company.

Latest offers in the Shop are featured on our website.

We are on Facebook, join us and you will hear about anything that is happening when it happens!

The Post Office is open Monday to Friday from 3:00pm to 5:15pm.

See you in the shop soon!

Thanks

Corenna

 


Question - What is Barford Village Shop?
Answer - It is a community shop, manned with volunteers, friends, neighbours, who give up their time to help. The shop sells local products from local suppliers, grown and produced locally, transported to us with less fuel, helping to keep the carbon footprint down. It supports the village and the local community. We seem to forget what it is all about, take it for granted. It becomes convenience. So next time you are served by one of our volunteers, just remember they are here because they want to.

As always, if anyone would like to be a volunteer, just pop into the shop to see what it is all about. We are a very friendly bunch and all our volunteers are approachable. Thanks for your continued support.

If you have any comments or queries about the shop or would like to volunteer and join our friendly team, our manager or call 01926 624075. We look forward to seeing you in the shop soon.
