Our staff

Shop manager
Our professional shop manager, John Goodenough, leads a team of dedicated volunteers who give up 3-4 hours of their time to work a shift in the shop or to help out in other ways.

John lives near Oxford with his wife and three children. He has a wide experience of the retail sector, having worked for the
Co-op for nine years during which he ran the Kennington store and was responsible for setting up the new store at Besselsleigh Road in Wooton.

John has been manager of Radley Village Shop since it opened in May 2007.

Contact John on 01235 526231 or email shopmanager@radleyvillageshop.com

We currently have a team of around 60 volunteers who serve in the shop and help in other ways, but new people are always welcome. Full training is given. More about what's involved

Become a volunteer. Could you spare a few hours of your time either regularly or occasionally to help our village shop? Either speak to the shop manager or contact the rota manager, Sheree Beckingham (email rota@radleyvillageshop.com).

Many of the volunteers are enjoying meeting other villagers. One volunteer comments:
"It's great to have a shop in the village again and I find it uplifting being involved. I had never worked in a shop before. My initial feelings of apprehension soon passed, as everyone was so supportive. I enjoy my weekly shift; meeting people, learning new skills and working in such a friendly atmosphere."

Regular newsletters help keep everyone up-to-date with what's happening in the shop.

Social events for volunteers and their partners are arranged 3-4 times a year.
