We are grateful to local businesses for their donations and Cheshire Police Safer Communities Express Grant for funding which has enabled us to open Earlams shop 3 days each week to sell a range of groceries for local customers and to deliver hampers to the vulnerable members of our community. The hampers have a variety of groceries and treats and are a welcome visit for those unable to leave home. (Shielding and social distance rules applied)
We thank the volunteers opening the shop and delivering hampers and hot food to those in our community who are shielding.
Ring the shop if you need any assistance.
Customers visiting the shop are asked to observe the distance signs and queue outside to keep volunteers and other customers safe,
We will update website as and when the situation changes, until then stay safe
Management Team met 16th March to consider business continuity plan and will update as situation progresses and in light of government advice

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service aims to recognise outstanding work by volunteer groups to benefit their local communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.

They include volunteers helping people overcome mental health problems through sport, volunteers using caravans as mobile cafe/information centres in geographically remote locations and another group mentoring children who have a parent in prison.
