Pop-Up Cafe and Apple Pressing

 



The shop is running a pop-up café in the Stewart Room of the Village Hall as part of the Apple Pressing Day. More information about the apple pressing is available from the Orchard Group.

The event takes place on Sunday 16th October from 10am-12 noon. The aim is to raise money towards a new Epos till which will provide more accurate financial information, better stock control and better pricing control.

We hope that you will be able to help on the day or provide some apple related produce for sale (cakes, pies, chutney etc). And of course come and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with a piece cake or maybe purchase your Sunday pudding!









Please let us know how you can help by emailing the shop: brightwellshop@btconnect.com or phone 01491 835551.

Staff Vacancies

 
 


As many of you know two of our recently appointed, trained staff have left. We are very pleased to tell you that Nic has stepped up to be Manager.  We have recruited Amanda, who is undergoing training for the shop and post office, however are still actively seeking additional staff to join Nic and Amanda.  If you, or someone you know, might be interested in applying for one or more 5hr shifts then please email bcsvillageshop@gmail.com or speak to Celia or Gina. Previous experience is not necessary as full training will be given.  

Please be aware that as a result of the above we are having to close the Post Office when trained staff/volunteers are not available. We are trying to limit this to the afternoon sessions only with the help of Nic, Donna, Annette, Carol & Anna.

On the shop side it's business as usual thanks to our wonderful volunteers and the daily support of the Management Committee
