We have a new Shop and Café Manager known to many local people: Julie Forster who lived in Freshford for a few years (during which time she worked briefly as a shop and café volunteer) and now lives in Hinton Charterhouse. She started in mid-September.
Julie has wide-ranging experience, including many years as a radiographer! Her most recent role (for the last four years) was as PA for William Cartwright-Hignett at Iford Manor, helping to run Iford Teas, which we sell in the shop and serve in the café. In She has helped out from time to time in By The Way, a gift shop in Bradford-on Avon.
Julie’s retail experience is limited but she a good understanding of the needs of our community. We have no doubt that she will pick up the intricacies of our shop and café quickly, helped by our existing team of Emily, Alessandro, Jane and Cheyenne and our many experienced volunteers.
