Our wonderful shop needs a few more volunteers – Can you help?
The shop is open every day and our busy well trained team operate like a well oiled machine to service all the lovely customers. If you can spare a couple of hours or so a week to serve in the shop, stack shelves or help the customers navigate round then please do get in touch with them.
The shop is friendly and welcoming and they are patient and careful to operate with self-distancing, lots of cleaning and with all the appropriate safety measures they can muster. The volunteers and customers alike remark how safe and welcome they feel.
They will provide an induction and then provide all the training you need. You won’t have to do any roles that make you feel uncomfortable. You decide when you want to work and as often or as little as you please.
Although we have lots of volunteers we always need more. Some of the new volunteers that joined us when we re-opened are now back at college, university or work and so we have a few gaps to fill.
Please drop into the shop and fill in a form or download it HERE

Trawden Forest Community Centre 

The fabulous Trawden Forest Community Centre is run by a Committee of Trustees made up of volunteers from the local community. It is entirely self-funded, covering running costs through user fees supplemented by fundraising.

The Trustees have managed to acquire a lease on the former library building that has now opened as as Community Shop and Library.  They were lucky enought to have acquired many books left by the library service, and this is open when the shop is open.  

The shop is opening with restricted hours and will open 10:00 am - 6.00pm Monday Friday, 10am - 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Community Shop

The Community Centre Trustees have acquired the old library building on Church Street adjacent to the Community Centre and, in record time, transformed it from a delapidated unloved space into a fantastic Community Shop and library.  

It is staffed completely by volunteers on a 2 hour shift rota.  If you would like to volunteer, please call into the shop and speak to someone who would be delighted to help you.

The shop has a filling station to cut down on plastic packaging, eco products, locally sourced meat, cheese, bread, cakes, glass bottled milk and butter.  There's a great selection of wines, beers and locally produced spirits too.

The building officially opened on 20th November 2018 and is already proving to be a huge success with people travelling far and wide to visit the shop.

Please do take time to visit the building.  The library remains closed, but the reduced shop hours which are Monday - Friday 10am - 6pm; Saturday and Sunday 10am - 4pm.   

Don't forget your jars/containers so that you can fill them with your products.  There is a great selection of pasta, rice, oats, herbs, spices, flour, sugar, coffee beans, dried fruits, beans, pulses and loose tea. Jars and paper bags are available should you need them. 

Sandwiches and pies are also sold in the shop, which has recently achieved its 5 star hygiene rating from Pendle Borough Council.
