On Wednesday the 7th November in the Memorial Hall a Volunteers evening was held in celebration of the Shop’s 10th Anniversary on 1st November
A well-known Black Country Comedy Duo ‘Dandy’ kept us entertained for the evening and an excellent time was enjoyed by all the Volunteers there.

Our volunteers are a fab team who represent our whole community.  They are aged from 14 to 92 and all have different personalities and strengths.  Between them they make the shop the vital social hub of the village.

Volunteering is a great way to get to know fellow Barfordians and find out about all the things going on in this vibrant village.

We have 2 social evenings a year as a thank you for all their hard work. So far we have had Indoor Curling, Skittles, Wind up horse racing, quizzes, barn dancing, country dancing, suppliers evenings and many more great nights. We really do have a great team!
