The Long Table needs you


The Long Table is looking for volunteers to help spruce up its new home.

The team, led by Tom Herbert, have found premises at Brimscombe Mill – a stone’s throw from their current base.

Volunteers are required to help clear vegetation and prepare the new site, with the next working party scheduled to commence work this Saturday, September 18th.

The Long Table is part of the Grace Network social enterprise organisation and one of a number of businesses, including Stroud Furniture Bank, Bike Drop and Kids Stuff, who are due to move off the site at the end of this month.

Project manager Ed Sauven is also looking for proficient in woodwork, he said: “My role is project managing, getting this building ready as fast as possible. But I do that amidst my role with Wayfarers, which is a Christian community that’s embedded amongst the Grace Network.

“There’s a lot of woodwork that needs to be done. We need specialists, not necessarily tradespeople, but people who are proficient in carpentry.”
