Finance Trustee – Chiddingly Village Shop and Cafe

Chiddingly had a wonderful old-fashioned village shop for over 100 years located a stone’s throw from the Six Bells pub and the church. It closed down in 1998 when the owners eventually retired and no-one could be found to take it on. About 10 years later, a campaign was mounted to set up a new shop, this time to be community-owned and run. Thanks to contributions from many locals in exchange for shares, as well as grants from several organisations, a new shop was created in a new location (Farleys Yard, Muddles Green – opposite Farleys Gallery) yet still within the environs of Chiddingly.

They are seeking a volunteer with expertise or a background in finance, who can assist with reading the financial records and the work of their accountants. This would involve not only understanding the information yourself, but helping the rest of the trustees and management in interpreting reports.
