The Lion Corner Community Shop is anticipated to open in September. We will need many unpaid volunteers to help in the shop on a regular basis and we ask you to apply.


Volunteers will be needed to assist in serving customers, general cleaning, maintenance and other important roles. We are recruiting a paid Shop Manager to run the shop. We will be working out all of the detail and arranging training for those who volunteer over the next few weeks prior to opening.


The Lion Corner Community Shop will:

  • stock the product range of most convenience shops

  • provide a welcoming community hub for the village

  • help to reduce social isolation

  • provide voluntary work opportunities for village residents of all ages and capabilities

  • be run by a manager and trained volunteers
