Who are we?
Of course, the success of The Pantry depends on the help of a large group of volunteers – not to mention the support of the stallholders and the people who come to browse, enjoy the coffee shop and buy some goodies. But the people listed below are the ones who got together originally to investigate the possibility of starting a community shop in Piddington. As a result of initial discussions, the group decided to organise a regular seasonal community market – The Pantry – as a first venture.
You can contact any one of us about any aspect of the market, as we share responsibility for the organisation and running of The Pantry. However, each of us has taken on some particular tasks on a day-to-day basis, and these are shown beside each name.
