The Management Committee would like to thank everyone who came to Farmborough Community Shop’s Grand Opening and Garden Party on Sunday 15 July. We had a great time and hope you did too!
Special thanks must go to all the volunteers who turned up to help on the day, Patience Barnes and the school children who officially opened the shop and in particular Nola Francis for acting as our resident ‘royal’ at the opening ceremony, as well as the shop’s ambassador Anthony Head who took some time out of his busy schedule to attend the event and browse the shop.
It was a memorable occasion and as Mark Swabey, our chairman, noted in his speech, “We look forward to the shop supporting the community, as the community supports the shop, so that everyone enjoys shopping here, the social interactions, and the satisfaction of making our village work as a vibrant community.”
See our Facebook page @FarmboroughShop for more pictures of the event.
Our next fundraising events will be:
- The Pig ‘n’ Perry at The Rec on Saturday 4 August from 3-7pm
- The Big Family Apple Day at the Shop and Memorial Hall Garden on Saturday 29 September from 12-4pm
