We finally have our shiny new website and what a great job Emily and the team have done at Online Toolbox Ltd! We’re so happy with it!

Well it’s December and we all know what that means! At CHALK it means change and working long hours to get ready for our community Christmas Day. The presents and goodies are flowing in as well as registrations for our fantastic volunteers and guests. If you would like to volunteer as a volunteer or a guest please visit www.chalkcic.co.uk/openhouse

Suzanne and Sarah will be at the market this week and acting as a collection point for all your Christmas donations as well as warm clothes and toiletries for the homeless. Pop along between 9 am and noon.


Ida has recently joined the team as our admin apprentice. She’s learning quickly and settling in well. You will speak to Ida when you call the shop or we call you. Please welcome Ida to the team and be patient as she learns.

We had a house full today as four lovely people attended our upholster course.


They are spending three days with us this week learning the skills of upholstery. Fancy joining us? We have courses in January and February.

Thanks for reading our very first post!
