The eco friendly “Healthy Planet” initiative has enabled two local organisations, Droitwich Arts Network and Transition Droitwich to establish a new and exciting community group which is seeking to expand by engaging with other local organisations.
Planet Droitwich is making use of an empty shop, formerly the Superdrug store in St Andrews Square Shopping Centre, in the mall leading out to St Andrews Street.
Founder members are the Droitwich Arts Network and Transition Droitwich.
In order for Planet Droitwich to be effective, we need to engage local organisations, to increase usage and encourage more volunteers to help, which in turn will increase amount of time the store is open.

An exciting opportunity
The opportunity to use space and facilities at the store is available for any local/ community organisation. It enables displays, workshops, meetings, advertising, and many other activities to take place in the centre of Droitwich.
Volunteers are able to participate on a regular basis, or occasionally, when they are available.
This is a great opportunity to make new friends and being sociable!
Volunteers may also gain increased confidence and useful experience.
Planet Droitwich has a large ground floor and basement space. The furniture is not fixed, making for great flexibility and different uses. Further donations of shelving and chairs are being sought.
In the basement there is a small kitchen and toilet plus wash basin for the use of volunteers manning the store.
Volunteers are there to assist visitors and keep an eye on the displays. Detailed guidance for volunteers will be available.
No direct selling can take place in the store. (This does not prevent private transactions nor membership fees being paid to the organisation using the store).
Books For Free will operate when the store is in use.
