Remember that the Shop is run by volunteers who may become ill with little or no notice.
Committee member Sarah Edwards manages our trading. The Committee set up the enterprise to reduce prices for members through bulk buying, to reduce vehicles on site and to help members who do not have access to a car. A small team of members helps Sarah on an occasional basis.
The shop items and price list is here, as well as on the noticeboard and the shop. In addition, we encourage members to share spare seeds – veg, herbs or flowers. Please bring them to the trading shop. If you’d like some free seeds, come and see what there is – even if you don’t have any to share yet.
Where is our shop? It is the concrete shed on the South Field. To reach the shop from the main gate, walk all the way down the track next to the flats. Then walk on the grass next to the metal boundary fence until the fence turns right. Follow the fence for a few meters and you’ll see the concrete shed which is the shop. It’s by the big ash tree. Alternatively, approach down the main central track and turn left when you see the concrete shed by the ash tree.
If you refer to the site plan on our Maps page, you can just about see the tiny writing that says “Trading sheds” – between plots 115 and 119, by the blue W on the bottom left-hand side of the plan.
Opening hours The shop generally opens on Sundays from 11am – 12noon. We expect to close during August and from December until early Spring. For updates and changes, please see the members’ noticeboard and monthly newsletters. If you cannot attend at the usual time, you are welcome to contact to arrange a one-off sale: Sarah firstname.lastname@example.org or 07960 352787. Sarah is also happy to do sales when she is on her plot, which is 120, right next to the shop. Please note that we may close in bad weather.
