Meet the Committee.....

 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.

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.

Hi, I'm the current Treasurer for the shop. I'm married to Beth with two grown up daughters, Georgie and Kitty.  I moved into the village in 2004 and am a retired chartered accountant but remain active in several voluntary roles.

I previously acted as Chairman of the shop committee from inception until 2016 and became Newport Show President in  2019.

 

My interests include rugby, golf, skiing and travel.

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.

We moved to Tibberton in December 2021 and were really keen to get involved with the community. My day job is Armed Forces Covenant Co-ordinator at Telford & Wrekin Council and I also Clerk for several Full Governing Bodies in schools across Telford including Tibberton CE Primary School.

 

Husband, myself and our two rescue cats look forward to meeting you over the coming months.

I’m the new boy, having moved to Tibberton in 2020. I am responsible for Digital Media, making sure we make best use of the communication options out there, optimising our use of Facebook and the website in support of the shop’s activities.

 

I’m an administrator of the website and also help with the Booker Cash and Carry run. We’re always looking for additional support, so if you’re interested in helping with the weekly shop, please get in touch.

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.
