Gawsworth Community Shop in the Gawsworth Hub has been opening till 4PM on Thursdays and Fridays as part of the process of returning to pre-covid opening hours. This in turn means that the Hub has improved access for community use. It means that shoppers later in the day can make last minute purchases and hopefully is convenient for purchases at school pick up time. We have been able to achieve this by recruitment of additional volunteers and also including young (over 16) volunteers. As well as supporting our community these young volunteers gain vital communication skills to help them in their careers. We will need more volunteers when school restarts. We are grateful for all the help we can get; more volunteers means that we can extend our current opening hours. If anyone is able to give a few hours of their time to volunteer in the shop please call into the hub during opening hours, call 07967 408865 or email volunteering at Gawsworth shop.co.uk. As a further move to return to pre-covid operations we will be returning to the single entrance to the shop on 31st August and reorganising the hub community space for activities including providing a space to sit down with friends for a coffee and a chat. Our community has shown responsibility in social distancing and the wearing of masks and we expect that these practices will continue.
