Haloween Pumpkins!

Our two Halloween Pumpkin Carving Workshops were a huge success last month. Both workshops sold out and everyone had a lot of fun. Have a look at the photos below of the amazing pumpkin creations!

Keen an eye out for our next events in the shop.

Nominations for Shop Management Committee now open

With the Annual Members Meeting now scheduled – 7.30pm on Monday 29th of November at the Village Hall – we can now accept nominations for the Management Committee.

Any member of Bishop Wilton Community Shop Ltd can nominate any other member for the shop Management Committee. Nominations must be submitted by 5.30pm on the 9th of November 2021.

The Management Committee runs the shop on behalf of the members for the benefit of the community. A wide range of skills and experience are required to run a successful committee and the more representative it is of the community the better.

To nominate a member please complete this online form.

If you would like to discuss the Committee Member role with the team or ask any other questions, please contact us here.

Save the date: Annual Members Meeting 2021

The 2021 Annual Members Meeting will be held on Monday the 29th of November at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. Please add the date to your diary and look out for more details early November.

All members are welcome and there is still time to register as a new member if you would like to attend and be a part of the membership.

This is a chance for all members to be updated on the progress of the shop, hear the future plans and also have their say on key issues. If members have been nominated for the committee there will also be a member vote on this.

All nominations for members for the management committee should be made before the 9th of November.

We look forward to seeing you all on the 29th of November!

We are looking for marketing volunteers

Are you looking to gain marketing experience & skills? Are you already a marketing pro who would like to support the Bishop Wilton community? 

We are looking for volunteers who can support our marketing efforts. Our marketing team help us ensure the community is happy with the shop, help us communicate news and help bring the community together. 

What would you be doing?

We are looking for individuals who can help us create content and also handle the management of our online communications. 

Key tasks include:

  1. Managing our social media presence (Facebook & Instagram)
  2. Scheduling and posting content on our social media channels and website
  3. Helping write content such as social media posts, blogs, web pages, flyers etc.
  4. Tracking and reporting on key marketing metrics
  5. Email mailing list management and campaigns

What skills and experience do you need?

If you have previous marketing experience that would be great, but we also have an experienced marketing team who could train someone up who is looking to learn. This would suit a marketing professional or someone who is looking to gain some experience & skills. 

If you can use Facebook, Instagram, have good written English and are passionate about the Bishop Wilton community then you have everything you need! 

How would it work? 

This is a voluntary role and you would provide two to four hours a week. The role can be performed remotely, but the team does meet in the shop or in Bishop Wilton for meetings occasionally (so being local would be beneficial). 

The team has a weekly meeting to discuss key focus for the weeks and months ahead and then each individual works on their areas of responsibility. Outside of the weekly call, the tasks can be performed whenever works. 

Why volunteer with us?

The Bishop Wilton Community Shop has been a great success and is a lot of fun. It is a great way to give back to and be a part of providing a vital service to the community. 

This is also a great way to gain experience and skill in marketing, retail and community enterprises.
