Welcome to the new managers of the Newcastle/Hunter Co-op Stop, Emma and Peter Watts.

It's a tough and sometimes tiring job but it's so much appreciated.

Dear local co-op members, please remember the trade for service scheme. Not mandatory but just nice. Ideas for this (to show your thanks for their work) would be to pick up someone else's order to clear it out of the pick up area quicker. Bring a bunch of parsley (or something) from your garden. Give them a tester of something you bought if they haven't tried it before.
All these things help make the Co-op Stop community a nice place, with volunteers that feel appreciated.

Wishing you well Emma and Pete.

Honey Supply

I have had SO MANY requests for more honey, but I'm afraid to say that the lovely man who supplied us has now quit. Honey production is too unreliable for him.

So now, I'm madly looking for the same quality honey to supply us. Prices have increased across the board and I'm scouring the state to find some.

Wish me luck and thanks for your patience.
