Thank you for visiting our website
The Chalke Valley Stores, known locally as the HUB, is situated in the United Reformed Church in the centre of the village of Broad Chalke in the heart of the beautiful Chalke Valley, officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It comprises a Shop, a Post Office and a Coffee Shop.
In addition to providing a service to the local villages, we also welcome visitors from all over the country – indeed increasingly from all over the world. Many come to the Chalke Valley to explore the area which is rich in history and has many places of great interest to visit as well as events to attend.
Ellen Smets, the HUB’s manager, is supported by Judith, Sharon and Sarah plus a large team of volunteers whose involvement adds to a strong sense of community and helps make the experience of visiting the HUB extremely relaxed, and the welcome genuinely warm and friendly. Wherever possible our products are sourced from small local growers and suppliers who are dedicated to the use of fresh ingredients and very often to traditional methods of production.
Residents of the Chalke Valley use the HUB for their essential shopping as we sell a wide variety of household goods, stationery, fresh meats and vegetables as well as drinks and take-away snacks. Others use it for a coffee in the morning, a light meal of homemade soup at lunch time or tea with fresh cakes and scones in the afternoon. In addition the Post Office provides a full range of postal, banking and foreign exchange services.
ELLEN AND HER TEAM AT THE HUB WISH ALL OUR CUSTOMERS
A HAPPY, HEALTHY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!
TWO PIECES OF GOOD NEWS TO START 2019
FIRSTLY, after much thought and planning the Management Committee has given the go-ahead to the refurbishment of the Coffee Shop’s tiny kitchen to make it more efficient and easier to work in and also to improving the heating in the Coffee Shop itself.
However, this will mean closing the Coffee Shop for a week or so, and the work is currently planned for the week beginning 24 February. There will be more precise information in the February newsletter but we wanted to share this good news with you straight away. As you can imagine we are delighted with this development as it will benefit both the staff and volunteers and most importantly you, our much valued customers.
SECONDLY, the recent share issue, offered to those who have moved in to our local villages during the last 5 years, has resulted in 26 new shareholders contributing over £2,000 in new share capital. This is great news and confirms how much support there is for the HUB and all it stands for. Thank you to all those who subscribed for shares.
It’s not too late if anyone else would like to become a shareholder. Copies of the prospectus are available in the HUB and from Terry Jolly our Company Secretary: email@example.com
