We Need 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.

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.

If you don’t want to be front-of-house, that’s not a problem. There are plenty of behind the scenes activities that need to be carried out to keep the store running efficiently.

Who can volunteer?

You can.

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.

If you are ready to volunteer then please download and complete the Volunteer application form and pop it into the store.

If you’re not quite ready to sign-up and would like to find out more about how you can contribute to the success of the community store, then please contact Jane Laws by using the form below.
