Trading – Cripley Meadow Shop
Committee member Sarah Edwards manages our trading. The committee hope the enterprise will be useful in reducing prices through bulk buying and also benefit the Meadow itself as eventually it should result in fewer cars and trucks on site. A small team of members is helping Sarah on a rota basis.
The opening times and current list of items for sale and prices are shown below. In addition, we are encouraging members to share spare seeds – veg, herbs or flowers. So please bring them to the trading shed if you don’t know anyone who can use them. If you’d like some free seeds, come and see what there is – even if you don’t have any to share yet.
Where is our shop?
We are using the concrete shed on the South Field – opposite the last block of flats, by the ash tree. You’ll see the sign from the main path to the shed.
Opening hours 2016
The shop now opens on Sundays from 11am - 12noon. (We no longer open later on Working Party days). Like last year we expect to close during August and from December until early Spring. For updates and changes, please see the members’ noticeboard and monthly newsletters.
If you cannot attend at the usual time, you are welcome to contact one of the volunteers to arrange a one-off sale:
Please note that we may close in bad weather.
