Members Focus Groups

Members Focus Groups

Application is now closed.

Many thanks for all members who have applied to take part in our member focus group. If you made an application you will be contacted directly by our Membership team.



Want to have your say on how we support our local community?

We are offering ten members an opportunity to come and speak with our membership and community managers and let us know what you think we should be doing in the local community.

A small focus group session will be held on Tuesday 29 October between 5.30pm and 7.30pm.

Why are we doing this?

As a community retailer we are proud to help and support so many local good causes, which in turn make a real difference to their communities.

But now we are looking for a cross section of our membership to help us shape what the future of our community support should look like.

Do you have ideas on how we could provide more help to those causes and issues which are important to you such as eco, diversity and inclusion, Fairtrade and sustainability, young people, elderly and vulnerable people, and our local culture?

How do you apply?

If you would like to be considered to attend this focus group, please register your interest by clicking the button below. The closing date for applying is Monday 7 October 2019.

The session will only be open to ten of our members. If you are successful we will be in touch with all the final details.
