HOPE’s new shop

HOSPITALFIELD Organic Produce Enterprise (HOPE) is opening a shop in the organic garden at Hospitalfield House on Monday, April 30.

It will initially be located in the polytunnel, but a purpose-built shed will be constructed nearby. The shop will be manned from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. from Monday to Friday.

The charity is looking for new volunteers to help man the shop. There are vacancies in the morning shift, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. working with an adult with learning disabilities, and in the afternoon shift, from 1 to 4 p.m. There is also a need for stand-by volunteers to provide cover for holidays and sickness. HOPE also needs experienced gardeners.

Anyone interested should contact Peter Phillips on 01307 465029 or ‘phone the HOPE garden on 07963 322457.
