The build progresses

The foundations have now been completed and the floor slab is in place. The bricklayers are now on site and are making good progress with the walls. Some days were lost over the past couple of months due to heavy rain, so they are currently about 1 week behind schedule. The good news is that the contractors will be making up the lost time over the next few weeks. Therefore the building is expected to be constructed by 31 August with the fit out then taking place during September.


Fittleworth Stores is looking to recruit two full time paid members of staff –  a Shop and Café Manager and a Shop and Café Assistant Manager.

They are looking for two individuals who are motivated, passionate and prepared to hit the ground running. Both Manager and Assistant Manager roles are for 35 hours per week (including some hours at weekends). The exact start date is to be agreed but is likely to be around mid-September.

Duties will include:

  • Running the shop and café on a day to day basis
  • Maintaining excellent relationships with our customers
  • Supporting and overseeing the work of volunteers
  • Displaying stock
  • Dealing with suppliers and developing our range of products
Full details including an application form and job specification are available from

Closing date for applications: 6 July (interviews in the week commencing 16 July)
