The Brockweir and Hewelsfield Village Shop celebrates ten years serving its community


Opened in 2004 by HRH Prince Charles and now an established award winning community project



The shop and café are staffed by volunteers without whom the project would not be possible.

There are more than 40 volunteers - some work a few times a week, some only once a month.

Each shift is 3 ½ hours and they work with at least one other volunteer.

The benefits of volunteering include making new friends, keeping the mind and body active, fulfilling a useful community service (and learning all the latest gossip in the area!).

Our volunteers are male and female and of all ages. The oldest volunteer so far is 82 and the youngest 18.

Those that do not want to help out in the shop or café often do deliveries or help with maintenance, and any help is appreciated.


If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please let Alison the Business Manager know, she would be delighted to hear from you.


We need more volunteers, whether you can help out once a week, once a fortnight, once a month or once in a blue moon we would be delighted to hear from you.
