Volunteers needed at Barrowden’s Community Shop

The website admin has been asked to post this notice on behalf of The Shop in Barrowden, which is seeking fresh volunteers.

Do you use the Barrowden & Wakerley Community Shop? Did you know that it is run by Volunteers from the local community – not just from Barrowden?

Would you have an hour or two each week to join the team at the shop – behind the till or in the café?  Perhaps you are retired, new to the area, looking for a new challenge, children just about to start school or leave home?

We would be very happy to see you – full training and support will be given along with a warm welcome and a big smile.

For further details, a chat and a coffee please pop in and speak to David, the manager or ring him on 01572 748748.  We look forward to seeing you!

The Village Plan – online and print copies

Morcott Parish Council would like to remind everyone, especially those who have moved to the village in the last year or so, that we have a Village Plan.

It was completed in May 2013 and represents villagers’ views on the nature of our community and the local environment, our social amenities and other services. It highlights what we value about Morcott, and our aspirations for the future. The entire village was involved at every stage, from answering questionnaires and attending open meetings to consultation groups on specific themes.

It is available in PDF form on the website (follow this link to the Village Plan page) and may be downloaded. Parish Council Chair Maureen Allan (747 203) also has a few printed copies available at a nominal cost of £5.
