Staff management and leadership
Since the shop’s inception Sara Dawe as general manager and Sub Post Mistress has overseen the successful development of the business. With the support of up to 40 volunteers the shop and Post Office remain a vital and flexible part of the community. Sara Dawe has the support of the seven-strong (volunteer) committee, who ensure a robust financial and strategic management. The perception of the shop by the wider community is seen as crucial and regular efforts to both maintain and increase its profile are undertaken. There are regular appearances in local publications as well as a Facebook page and occasionally on local television. Training is ongoing to ensure a reliable and consistently high level of service.
Farewell to Assistant Manager
At the end of January, at a volunteers’ evening at the Eliot Arms, Management Committee Chair Pat presented Lisa Roberts with flowers and John Lewis vouchers. She had been assistant manager for over 5 years and was well thought of by Sara, volunteers and customers alike. We wished her well on her new venture in the village.
