We are delighted to have Michaela Hopkins working as our Assistant Manager (Trainee). She started with us back in July and enjoys getting to know all the volunteers and our customers. Do introduce yourself to her, if you have not yet met her. We wish her well, and hope she will be very happy working in our Community Shop. Her first task will be to understand how the Shop runs now, and then gradually to increase her range of responsibilities.
Our Manager, David Lewis, has been with us for nearly four years now. He is enjoying meeting so many people from Barrowden and Wakerley and the surrounding villages. He welcomes fresh offers to help out in the Shop. He and the other volunteers would soon help you to feel at home and to make new friends both of volunteers and of customers. It has been a special joy to welcome as volunteers some who have recently moved into the village.
David also hopes you will let him know if there are any particular goods or suppliers you would like to recommend.
