the Plunkett Foundation Rural Community 
Co-operative Awards 2017
People's Choice Award


THANK YOU 
to all who voted for Our Ron...



RON THORNE
received 48% of the Vote!
Ron is keen to point out that he feels this vote is for
everyone who helps with the shop
 - behind the counter or behind the scenes. 
He says:
 "This is an award, not for me personally but for our shop 
and our community"
But without Ron's cheery smile and driving enthusiasm
 the shop wouldn't be the success it is today!
Well done to the two runners-up who were also shortlisted. 
Voting has obviously closed, but you'll find details of the three finalists here

Our Ron
being his usual chatty, cheery self!

YOUR VILLAGE SHOP NEEDS YOU!
as you know, the shop runs entirely on a
voluntary basis
and we desperately need more helpers!

By volunteering, not only would you be helping your community
you would also have a laugh, get to know others living in the area
and meet new people.
* * *
We could also do with a few more people on the Committee,
particularly as Anne intends to retire as Secretary in the near future

How about it?
COME AND JOIN US!

SCAM ALERT REMINDER
Please, please take care with telephone scammers!
NEVER
give your personal details, your banking details, click onto a website they tell you to go to, or allow access to your computer via the telephone. THINK! You wouldn't give your bank details to a stranger in the street - so why give personal details to a stranger on the telephone?
