November is the month you will see Christmas fayre arriving in your shop. Seasonal chocolates, cakes, drinks, sweets and foods can be found here. We started taking orders for fresh Christmas turkeys from the end of October. Turkey prices have been kept the same as last year at £3.50/lb courtesy of the Platt family, our local supplier, from their farm in Gawsworth. There is also a range of gifts and Forest Gins and Whisky to buy for that special person. We have added seasonal greetings cards to our range of cards.

We have been undergoing a rebrand of your community shop and hub. We want to reflect the role we have in the community. We are now rebranded as Gawsworth Hub delivering shop, café, and meeting place functions. Our shop is key to delivery of community services as it is the main provider of income, your custom in the shop will help us to do more in the community.

As the nights draw in, why not brighten up your day and arrange to meet a friend or two in our Hub Cafe. You will receive a warm welcome from Janet and her volunteers. Every day, Janet bakes delicious cakes and scrumptious scones to accompany fresh filled baps made to order and hot savouries from the deli with more to come as we become established and demand builds. Why not drop in for a chat with friends and enjoy a coffee, tea or soft drink with a range of cakes and pastries.

This autumn, Gawsworth Hub is funding Gawsworth School pupils to join children around the world to take part in ROAR 2021. The scheme encourages children to create 8billion ideas to save the planet.

Our entrant in the Friends of Gawsworth Scarecrow Trail, one “Veronica Volunteer” sat outside the cafe and attracted much interest as she promoted volunteering within our community enterprise.  

We will mark Remembrance Day with a display in the Cafe.

Our dedicated volunteer team enjoy serving you, sharing news or just idle conversation. We are always looking for more volunteers, not only in the shop and café but there are many ways you can help to support our community. If you feel that you would like to be part of our team, we would be pleased to talk to you. Either leave your contact details in the Hub or email volunteering@gawsworthhub.co.uk
