What an amazing transformation to our fruit and veg co-op shop! After a very busy month with joiners, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, artists and a willing bunch of paintbrush-wielding volunteers, the shop has undergone a complete makeover. Our thanks go to the Dulux Let’s Colour Community Initiative and Community Food & Health Scotland for funding, as well as Havelock Europa whose contacts helped us to reduce the cost of the new shelving, counter and flooring.
The shop is not only incredibly stylish (Community artists MSCreative, brought in a fruit-theme design painted over the ceiling and down all the walls, as seen in a Barcelona fruit shop!), but we now have space to stock a greater range of healthy produce and there is far more space for customers. At the launch event on 8th Feb, we had 15 people mingling in the shop front, something that would have previously been impossible! Take a look at the before and after shots!
We have had some brilliant comments and great feedback from our customers and volunteers, and have had lots of new faces coming into the shop, so word is spreading
about our lovely produce and friendly reception!
