Changing the Guard at Our Shop
On Saturday 13th June, our much-loved Manager Jillian Fawcett will retire, having run the shop for 6½ years. During her time at the helm, she has turned it into a destination for food-lovers as well as providing a wonderful service to the village and increasing the shop sales from around £170,000 a year when she took over to its current level of approaching £250,000. During the current coronavirus crisis, she has worked extraordinarily long hours and managed to source supplies that were unavailable in supermarkets and we have wanted for little over the last three months. Well done Jillian and a big thank-you from the whole village.
On Monday 15th June, Mary Brown will become our new Manager. Mary lives in Merriott with husband Martin and her beloved border terrier Moss – she should fit in well here with all the border terriers and other small dogs in the village! Mary comes to us with a wealth of experience in retail, having work for the last 21 years for Beales until their collapse into administration and before that for 7 years in a cash and carry. Says Mary: ” Following Jillian is going to be a great challenge but I’m already loving the job and getting to know all the customers”.
BANNER ERECTORS AT IT AGAIN
“The Phantom Banner-Erectors strike again!
We woke up the other morning to find that the phantom banner phantom banner-erectors had struck again, with a lovely star-spangled banner! It’s such a lovely idea and we can’t wait for the next one.
A big thank-you again to our team of super-stars who are keeping the village well-supplied through Our SHOP.”
