Pop Up Shop Opened on 16tb March
Due to Corona Virus (Covid-19) the pop up shop has closed, but will reopen at an appropriate time.
A community pop up shop has opened in Eastleigh’s Swan Centre shopping centre on Monday 16 March, with the ribbon being cut by the Deputy Mayor of Eastleigh Cllr Cynthia Garton at 10.30am.
The shop, located between Boots and Card Factory, is currently being furnished with chairs and tables in anticipation of its role as a shopfront for local charities, voluntary and community groups. The project is a result of partnership work between Flourish, an organisation dedicated to connecting people and places; Solent Mind, a charity committed to better mental health; and the voluntary sector support charity One Community, to offer free space in the shopping centre.
Groups can book a one-off slot, perhaps in relation to a particular campaign “day” or “week”, or a regular slot, such as the first Monday of the month, for their organisation to showcase their services, run an activity, host a meeting or simply attract new members or volunteers.
Solent Mind will be occupying the shop on Fridays and Saturdays providing wellbeing services to local people.
The shop will be available Monday to Thursday for local organisations to book their space and One Community’s Naomi Stock is responsible for bookings. Contact Naomi on 023 8064 1202/023 8090 2400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
