The Board has elected Mr Neil Phillips as the new Chairperson of the Society, effective 1st January 2022. Neil has been involved with the Society since the concept of a community shop was first mooted in 2010. He has many years of experience with the shop, and more recently with the purchase of the next-door flat and the building works that have allowed us to open up the café and meeting place. Moreover, Neil has the energy and vision to move the business forward into a new era in which we develop Gawsworth Hub to be much more than just a shop. I can assure you that the Society is in excellent hands.

Paul Stanion will continue as Interim Chairperson until 31st December, and will then take over Neil’s previous role as Premises Coordinator.

The Board is short of directors at the moment and has three vacancies one of which is for a Communications Coordinator.
