Here are some of the questions we’re asked regularly.  We hope they will help you gain a better understanding of our community purpose and more about how we work with and in the village to contribute to a thriving village community.

Volunteering is key to helping us run the Shop and with a bit of training anyone can volunteer with us.  You can give as little and as much time as you have to give and our volunteers tell us how rewarding it is.  Simply pop into the shop and ask any of the team about becoming a volunteer or email us from this website


Yes all you have to do is ring us with your order and one of our volunteers will deliver directly to your home in Houghton or Wyton.

Becoming a shareholder is a great way of showing your support for Our Shop and ensuring the sustainability of this valuable community asset. All you need to do is ask for the relevant paperwork in Our Shop or email our membership secretary at members@hwcommunityshop.org.  Any one of the Committee would be more than happy to tell you what’s involved too if you mention this in your email.
