The Committee set up a shop on site 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. Committee member Dominica Luscombe now manages the shop.
The shop sells a number of items including composted manure, Enviromesh, ground cover and some second hand equipment.
The shop is usually only open by appointment. Members wishing to purchase from the shop should contact Dominica Luscombe (firstname.lastname@example.org, 07717 112326) with a list of the items they would like to buy. She will check availability and arrange a time for you to visit the shop, and will agree in advance the most appropriate payment method (bank transfer or cash). People are still being seen one at a time due to Covid. Sarah Edwards (email@example.com), who previously managed the shop, will be helping occasionally, eg when Dominica is away, but please always contact Dominica initially.
The shop items and price list is here, as well as on the noticeboard and in the shop. Usually, we share spare, donated seeds for free in the shop, but not during the Covid pandemic.
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 after plot 115. You will 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.
