About Us

Our Management Team consists of a group of volunteers from the village with a wide range of backgrounds, skills and experiences, plus our two part-time managers.

The Team continue to work hard to pursue the best options on behalf of our 300+ members, our village residents,  our visitors and local organisations.

Not one of us had actually run a grocery shop but, somehow, between us and our wonderful shop volunteers, we've managed to set up and run a successful little business!

Our Management Team

On a day to day basis the shop is run by the shop managers with support from a range of volunteers. The Managers report to the Committee, who are responsible for deciding strategic aims and operational matters.

The Management Team meets on a regular basis throughout the year.
