The Candover Valley Store needs you!
The Candover Valley Community Store is run by the community for the benefit of the community. Whilst we have a paid manager and assistant manager, all other staffing comes from volunteers, without whom the store would not survive. So why not volunteer at Candover Valley Store?
Volunteering is fun
By volunteering you will meet fellow villagers and valley residents, learn new skills and play your part in keeping the store going, providing an essential service to our community. Our existing band of volunteers find it a rewarding experience – keeping both body and brain active, meeting new people and giving something back to the community.
If you don’t want to be front-of-house at the Candover Valley Store, that’s not a problem. There are plenty of behind the scenes activities that need to be carried out by volunteers to keep the store running efficiently.
Who can volunteer?
The store is for the whole community and the wider the cross section of volunteers, the better. Young people aged 16 – 18 need permission from a parent or guardian to volunteer, young people aged 14 – 15 can volunteer alongside a parent or guardian. The Candover Valley Community Store will have a safeguarding policy that will apply to all staff members and volunteers.
No special skills or experience are required. Just a willingness to get involved and some time to commit.
