Trading – Cripley Meadow Shop
Committee member Sarah Edwards manages our trading. The committee set up the enterprise to reduce prices for members through bulk buying but also to benefit the Meadow itself as a more environemnetally friendly space as it results 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 and are on the noticeboard and the shop. In addition, we encourage members to share spare seeds – veg, herbs or flowers. 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 use 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.
The shop generally opens on Sundays from 11am - 12noon. 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:
Sarah firstname.lastname@example.org or 07960 352787 or Sara email@example.com. Sarah is also happy to do sales when she is on her plot, which is 120, right next to the shop. Please note that we may close in bad weather.
