CLAPHAM Village Shop has spruced up its garden for the coming season to provide an outside seating area, including cycle racks and charging point for e-bikes and mobile phones.

The shop is hoping that this will become a welcome pit stop for cyclists and walkers as the weather improves, so spread the word among your friends and family.

The community shop is always on the lookout for more volunteers. If you would like to get involved, then pop in and speak to Helen. There are many other roles as well as serving behind the counter. It is a great way to meet people in the village if you are new to Clapham. If you would like to become a shareholder, more information is available on the website or call Diane Elphinstone on 51813.
