The Craft Shop

The trust has a shop in Castleford market run by our volunteers and is open from 9.00am to 4.00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.   We have Heritage books, gifts and lots of great art and crafts for sale, all made by local people.   Not all the articles are donated, the shop runs a sale by commission policy where artisans can sell their produce and keep the majority of the sale price.   Call in and have a look round, find out more about the Trust and join in with the different craft activities.

If you are interested in helping out please get in touch with the Shop Co-ordinators Janice Brookes and Sue Rocket, contact details can be obtained by calling the Trust on 01977 556741.
Volunteers are still being sought, so even if you cannot commit fully perhaps you could cover when others are unavailable.

The stock in the shop is constantly being replenished, these photographs are for illustrative purposes only.
