Meet the Committee.....

Judy Carter.jpg

 I had a few years break from the committee and have now returned!

My background is in tourism and retail, so now I am part of the shop retail team. I have lived in Tibberton for over 30 years and our children went to the village school.

 

My primary role is Bloomers bread, local products, cards, jams and honey.

I moved to Cherrington in the summer of 2021 with my husband and son. Once we got settled in, I started to get involved with the shop in early 2022 and joined the committee in the spring.

As well as working the odd Friday morning shift, my main role is organising the shop rota each month. As well as emailing everyone for their availability each month, I’m also responsible for volunteer communications - so you’ll probably get used to seeing my name pop up in your inboxes!

I moved to Tibberton in 2021 with my husband James and 2 children, Philippa and Rory. 
I really enjoy village life and love having facilities like a village shop to enjoy. I feel strongly that it is important to support the shop to ensure they remain a focal point for the community. 

So, I started volunteering in the shop in 2022 and have recently joined the committee. I’m looking forward to playing an active role and attracting more volunteers to assist the existing team. 

I’m a Company Director running a company with my husband that leases Apple Macs to businesses. We are an active family and enjoy a variety of sports from Cyclo-cross to Triathlon. You may even find me running around the village field to improve my fitness!

Hi, I’m Vanessa Grainger, and I’m part of the retail group, and I’m mainly responsible for perishable goods, e.g. eggs, bacon, sausage, so that you can get a hearty breakfast, and I also get the pork and other pies, scotch eggs, and quiches. Mainly at weekends, so you can have a tasty picnic or snack!

I’m also responsible for seasonal products, e.g. flowers and plants, Christmas wreaths, logs and kindling, etc.

Should you need any of the above, or anything similar, give me a tinkle on 550582.

I moved to Tibberton in early 2021 with my husband Phil, to be closer to friends and family (my parents, sister, and her family also live in the village). 

I joined the shop committee in May 2023, because one of the things that I value in my new home, is the community spirit that Tibberton has. The shop is an important aspect of this community and I wanted to be more actively involved. 

In my leisure time, I enjoy swimming and you might spot me on my daily walk of the village. I also love to cook and read.

As Secretary I help keep the Shop on track administratively and legally, working closely with Committee colleagues and our volunteers.

It’s piloting and navigating all at once, sometimes through turbulent air - as with COVID - but with a few aerobatics thrown in to keep it fun.

I volunteer in the Shop usually on Friday/Saturday mornings and help the team compiling the weekend newspapers.

So, if you want know more about what happens behind the scenes at the Shop or, chat about aircraft and flying, or anything else, I’m on Alert 5.

My wife, Susannah, and I moved to Cherrington at the start of 2022. We live with our two

horses: Percy who is a traditional cob and Mike the mini mini-Shetland who has a mane to

rival Tina Turner in the 1980s.

My role on the committee is to act as the Treasurer. I am therefore responsible for the

preparation of the management and financial accounts, preparing appropriate management

information and making relevant submissions to HMRC and the Financial Conduct Authority.

All of the finance activity is built on the work done by the committee and those involved in

running the shop but particularly the specific work done by Olivia and Barrie.

As part of the committee, I also aim to support the ongoing development of the shop in order

to support the wider aim of supporting the village and local community.

I have been involved with our lovely Village Shop since the very beginning, when it was just an idea in our heads. It has been such a pleasure being part of the shop and I have really enjoyed not only serving behind the till and helping to keep the shop in good order, but also having the opportunity to meet so many people.

My main committee role is that of public relations and part of that is posting occasional pieces on Facebook and sending stories to local press. I very much enjoy meeting with new volunteers and being part of the training team.

 

With other committee members I have been involved in organising events for volunteers including a summer barbeque and a Christmas party. Along with the church, the pub, the school and the many activities, groups and events that take place, it is the people that make Tibberton such a special village.

Having joined the committee for the first time recently, I'm learning rapidly about all that happens behind the scenes to make the Shop work. I intend to fill a role on the Committee which suits my financial and business strengths and supports the team’s present and future needs.

 

I’m currently helping Peter with finance/retail liaison and helping Nick and Graham with the early planning for how the about the Shop better meets our community’s needs in the future.
