HOW DOES THE HGA OPERATE ?

The HGA, like most local organisations, is run by a small committee of unpaid volunteers, who meet once a month to discuss and organise the general running of the association, and in particular matters relating to the Barn Store. 

The Barn Store is normally open every Sunday morning from 10am to 12 noon from early February to mid October. Although non-essential retail, indoor leisure facilities and outdoor hospitality will re open on Monday 12th April 2021. We are still living with social distancing and mask wearing so sadly have decided we will not be able to open the Barn store safely until mid summer at the earliest.

In addition to the limited selection of products on the website last year we now have all our products on offer on the website.

HOW DOES THE BARN STORE OPERATE ?

There are two committee members on duty every Sunday morning to administer the general running of the store. In addition to this we ask our members to assist at the store on at least one Sunday morning a year in either a cashier, handler or gatekeeper role. We issue a monthly roster of duties and check members availablity by phone or email well in advance to ensure that the proposed date is suitable.

AS A MEMBER DO I HAVE TO HELP ?

The store could not operate without the continued assistance of our members so we do ask all our able bodied members to assist, in some way.This helps to run the store and gives our members the opportunity to swap gardening anecdotes or seek advice from more experienced gardeners. 

However, if you are unable to help due to age or medical problems please indicate on your membership application form.
