Newsletter - October 2020
The shop is currently open Monday to Friday from 10am to 1pm. Business is starting to pick up again. Should there be any future changes we will send out an email to those on our database and also put details on our website.
CHRISTMAS - Yes, we know you probably don’t want to be thinking about that yet! However, at the time of writing the future situation is still uncertain and we are seeing further lockdowns in other parts of the country. Customers are already asking for Christmas cards and gifts in case they are not able to get out to buy them later in the year. We have therefore taken the decision to start putting our Christmas stock out earlier than usual.We are the only shop in the area where you can find a good range of cards with the real Christmas message!
COFFEE SHOP - Unfortunately, we do not have enough space to open up for coffees at this time. Please be assured we are constantly monitoring the situation.
MAIL ORDER - Don’t forget our mail order service!
The shop is currently open Monday to Friday from 10am to 1pm, and also Saturday mornings during August.
Wordwise has always been about supporting local Christians, so it is your shop and not ours! We need your help to keep us going.
A number of our regular volunteers are still self-isolating so we are currently unable to open in the afternoons, and are struggling to find enough people even to cover the mornings.
So, we are asking local Christians, “do you want your shop to stay open?”
Would you be available to help? The minimum requirement is only 3 hours a week. You will have someone to work with you and show you the ropes. Operating the till is not as daunting as it sounds, and training will be given. A very large part of our ministry is just talking to customers as they come into the shop.
Please do get in touch for more information - 01548 856571
The Shop is closed, but we are "OPEN" for mail order...
We have several DVDs which are ideal for use during the lockdown.
