Many volunteers delivered and collected the questionnaire, which went to every household in the village seeking views on the shop. The responses have now been analysed, and some actions have already been taken to respond to comments received, further initiatives will be taken in the future. There are some suggestions regarding stock items which we aren’t able to meet, these are the ones that entail the shop having to pay delivery charges, but where suggestions can be tried, they we will be in stock over a period of time. To all who took the time to respond, thank you. Welcome to the new members who joined the Association after receiving the questionnaire and to all of the volunteers who delivered and collected the questionnaires, I extend the Committee’s grateful thanks.
I am sure most of you will have heard that Stephanie has had a baby girl, whom she and Russ have named Isla. The family is doing well and are overwhelmed with all the cards and gifts they have received.
It has come to the management team’s notice that some of you think Steph is not returning. This is not the case; she has already been enquiring about how the shop is doing, and is determined to be back in time to organise and run the Christmas stock event in late November. All of you who know Steph will not be surprised that she left the shop in good order, with very clear instructions for every event that may occur. And prior to her holiday, Margot worked way beyond her duty to make sure that the new team of Supervisors is well trained in all aspects of running the shop. Each of them is committed to ensure that the shop continues to be well stocked and maintains a friendly reception to all who use it. Please call in and meet, Mandy, Carole, Jules and Alistair, they will be pleased to see you and help with any queries you may have.
