Green Light for our Community Shop!
A huge THANK YOU to all those who have bought shares, offered loans or made donations to ensure we keep a shop and Post Office in Burley Gate. We are nearing our original target of £48,000 and the Management Committee are thrilled to announce that we are able to go ahead and open a Community Shop.
If you have not bought shares, there is still time as the share offer is remaining open. The more members we have, the better chance of future grants, so please make the effort to sign up.
The shop and Post Office will have a paid manager, but there are plenty of jobs for volunteers. If you haven’t already put your name forward, do please contact one of the committee members. We need all the help you can offer. Look out for the date of the Volunteers Meeting. Also, if you would like to help the Management Committee in these final crucial weeks to setting up – contact us. We would especially like help from builders and carpenters (car park entrance and access ramp). If you could offer us a discounted rate to help this community project get off the ground we would love to talk to you! (Please call Martin Hoskins 07889 106533)
The exciting news is – we have ordered a brand new portable building which is being designed to our specification. It will be a tasteful pale and mid-blue – we think you will like it.
