Friends of Aden seeking volunteers

The Friends of Aden Country Park are looking for more volunteers to help out in the Aden Craft & Gift Shop.

With summer now upon us, the Friends want to open the Aden shop for longer hours.

Currently, the shop shuts at 3pm, Monday to Friday, and that’s just when the park starts to get busy.

The Friends are looking for friendly folk who would like an opportunity to help the community group to run the shop.

It doesn’t matter if you have worked in a shop before as training and support will be available and there are always at least two volunteers on hand to lend some support.

This is a great opportunity for anyone trying to find employment in the retail trade, providing an opportunity to gain experience, learn new skills and improve your CV.

The extended opening hours would be between 3pm and 6pm, Monday to Friday throughout the summer season.

In addition, the group is looking to hear from anyone who could help out at weekends.

Those interested should call (01771) 624268, email thefriendsofaden@yahoo.co.uk or by simply dropping into the shop and speaking to a member of staff.

The shop stocks a variety of locally-produced crafts.
